With five candidates vying for Timaru’s mayoral chains, October’s election promises to be an interesting one.

Challengers have emerged for the Waimate and Mackenzie mayoralties, with both now a two-horse race.

There’s strong competition in the Timaru ward, with 16 candidates standing for the six seats available. Three candidates are standing for the one Geraldine seat, and three for the two Pleasant Point-Temuka seats.

Elections are also assured for the district’s three community boards – Geraldine, Temuka and Pleasant Point. The only organisation failing to field sufficient candidates is the Geraldine Licensing Trust, which has five candidates standing for the six positions.

After a slow start for nominations in the Mackenzie district, elections are now assured for all seats around the council table and on the district’s three community boards – Twizel, Tekapo and Fairlie.

In the Waimate district, there is good competition for the four Waimate ward vacancies, with 11 candidates standing. However, voters in the other three wards will only get to choose their mayor, as nominations have not exceeded the seats available.

The South Canterbury District Health Board has 13 candidates vying for the seven seats available, and the two South Canterbury seats on Environment Canterbury will also be hotly contested, with six candidates standing.
