Wellington mayoral debate

Last night's Wellington City mayoral debate at the Ngaio community hall, featuring seven of the eight candidates. In order, left to right, they are Helene Ritchie, Nicola Young, Keith Johnson, Andy Foster, Nick Leggett, Justin Lester and Jo Coughlan. Compere Linda Clark did a fine job as usual, although the elderly gentleman sitting next to me mistook the invitation to question the candidates for an invitation to make a long, rambling speech of his own. The debate was a good-natured affair, with few niggles between the candidates and pretty fair answers to the audience's questions.
