Where do the Waikato’s four election candidates stand on health and the people of the region, and how knowledgeable are they of the electorate’s history?

NZ Herald Local Focus canvassed the candidates’ views on that and more when it interviewed them recently.

The video interviews of the candidates, including Tamahere locals Philippa Stevenson (Green Party) and Tim van de Molen (National Party), are now online.
