This year, all candidates for Tasman District Council and the two Community Boards will be given the opportunity to have their candidate profile statements filmed. We are offering to video your profile statement and then post a link alongside your written profile statement on our website. A link to all candidate profile videos will also be included on the front cover of the candidate information booklet that is posted out with voting documents.
The process is very simple and just a matter of reading your 150-word election statement from an autocue.
We will be in contact once nominations close and give you booking details for the filming days of 22nd and 23rd August (all filming will be undertaken at the Motueka Service Centre). Each candidate will be able to book a 20-minute slot to have their profile statement filmed.
