Citizen scrutiny of local government

All the scorecards being put out by our emerging election watchdogs – The Spinoff
September 2019

This piece came out of the work I was doing with the Common Climate Network NZ for the 2019 local government election, encouraging people to vote for climate-friendly candidates. I was fascinated by the plethora of groups undertaking similar scorecard activities. I’m really grateful to Hayden Donnell for accepting my pitch and giving me invaluable guidance to get this piece across the line.
