Community Action Nelson presents our annual forum for the community sector. Hear what Nelson’s mayoralty candidates have to say on housing, wellbeing and other issues relevant to our sector. Network and enjoy a free lunch!
CAN has held candidate forums for national and local elections since the 1990s. This year we have decided to focus on the mayoral election in Nelson city. Each candidate is invited to introduce him or herself and outline their understanding of community sector issues and how council can support the sector.
Chair, Mary Ellen O’Connor, will then lead a Q&A session, based around these topics:
- The community investment fund
- Council’s responsibility for the wellbeing of Nelsonians and assistance for the vulnerable
- Council action to streamline the consent process to ease affordable housing builds
- Emergency housing
There will also be an opportunity to network over a light lunch. Candidates for council are also being invited to attend. They will not be part of the panel discussion but you will have a chance to chat to them informally during morning tea and lunch.
CAN is a group of experienced people offering support to the community health and social services sector in Nelson.
