Over 45 people came along to the the final of the PRGI 'Meet the Candidates' sessions last night (22nd September). The session went well and attendees in person and online had the opportunity to learn what the standing Woodend-Sefton Community Board Candidates would offer the community if elected.
As per our previous session, each candidate was sent two questions beforehand on key community issues arising from our recent residents' survey and had six minutes to provide their ideas and answers.
Question 1: Security & Safety
Pegasus has grown considerably and unfortunately, some anti-social and criminal activity has grown with it. Rangiora and Kaiapoi have permanent CCTV cameras. Similarly, Pegasus residents are very concerned over the unsafe pedestrian and cycle access to both Ravenswood and through Woodend, especially as our designated high School is in Kaiapoi. What solutions would you propose for Pegasus?
Question 2: Youth Initiatives
As our town has grown the need for youth activities and facilities has become apparent. How would you look to address this urgent need?
