A vacancy on the board has become available following the resignation of board member Steph Knight.

Nominations for the position open today Thursday 11 February. 

Wellington City Council’s Electoral Officer, Warwick Lampp, encourages people keen to contribute to the future of Tawa to take up the challenge. 

“Candidates must be nominated by two Tawa residents, but don’t need to live in Tawa themselves. It is also a great idea to submit a profile statement and recent photograph of themselves with their nomination that will be sent out with voting documents.

"The requirements for profile statements and photos are set out in a candidate information sheet which is available with the nomination form."

Nomination forms are available from Tawa Library, 158 Main Road Tawa; Arapaki Manners Library, 12 Manners Street; Te Awe Library at 29 Brandon Street, Wellington; or downloadable from Tawa Community Board by-election

Completed nomination documents must be received by the Electoral Officer no later than 12 noon on Thursday 11 March.

Each nomination must be accompanied by a deposit of $200 incl GST, payable by online banking (details available on the nomination form), or eftpos. 

Your nomination form, profile statement and photo can also be emailed to wellingtoncc@electionz.com
