Earlier this month, in collaboration with NG9 News, we introduced our election campaign Take note then Vote. We invited all candidates to share what they already have done for their community and what they propose to do to help readers make an informed choice and vote for the right person; who may not necessarily represent the party you might usually select at a general election.

Over the last few weeks we have posted candidates’ manifestos and our readers have engaged in much debate on our website and social media pages. There is plenty of evidence on our site, plus elsewhere, of who actually does support this community. Maybe view our Community Action Team minutes and use our search engine to help you make an informed choice.
