Should ROCC stand in the 2016 Local Body Elections?

Respect Our Community Campaign(ROCC) was set up in 2013 in opposition to the East West Link – a motorway proposed to be put through the communities of Mangere and Otahuhu. After we stopped that, we decided to keep our group going.

Now we are exploring the possibility of putting candidates forward for the 2016 local body elections. We feel that this will give ROCC a stronger voice and a better way to advocate for Mangere-Otahuhu.

ROCC have always been about community for community so we’d love to hear your thoughts about this proposal. ROCC is really open to your input. Maybe you’d like to stand as a candidate? Maybe you have some skills and/or time you’d like to contribute to this campaign?

At this stage this is only an idea. If you think it’s a good one – let ROCC know and show your support by:

– Coming to our public meeting on the 11th of February, 2016 at 7pm, Mangere East Community Centre, 372 Massey Road, Mangere East (behind the Mangere East Library)
– Sharing this blog post on social media
– Connecting with ROCC on Facebook and Twitter
– Filling in this quick survey

Thank you for your support!
