Speed dating new plymouth
Voters had a chance to get up close and personal with their council candidates at a speed-dating event on Saturday.
Organised by current New Plymouth District Council councillor and candidate Shaun Biesiek, 21 other candidates and about 30 members of the public took up the opportunity to talk face to face.
Councillors were put in pairs and rotated around groups of between two and four members of the public, who were given the chance to ask any questions they liked within a five minute period.
Glen Bennett, who MC'd the event, said it was a chance for the public to get to know the councillors in a more intimate way and also ask the probing questions.
