Let’s give a sh*t about local politics!
There’s an election coming up this October that will determine the future of our city and our region for the next few years. Don’t really know what it’s all about?
We’re here to help you #adult, demystifying everything you need to know about the local elections this year, and why you should give a sh*t. Plus we’re asking the hard-hitting questions to all the young candidates running for elections across the region, Cards Against Humanity style.
With live entertainment!
This is a free event, and you need to register to attend via the form above. Unfortunately there won't be door registrations, and if you arrive and haven't registered, you won't be able to enter the event.
DISCLAIMER: Seed Waikato have invited all candidates running for Council from across the region who are 35 or under to speak at this event. This event is specifically designed to encourage younger people to participate in local elections, and will tautoko other events that create space for the other candidates, as they understand many people over the age of 35 care about the issues young people do, and can and do create change on those issues.
‘Paper’ Matt Shea is not only a great pun, but also a candidate for Hamilton City Council West Ward.
Born in Hamilton but raised in Te Kauwhata, Matt studied Law at the University of Waikato and has been a business owner on both sides of the city before moving into education.
In 2019, Matt’s campaign will focus on speeding up our Council’s processes, an actually functional CBD, and giving individuals and communities the autonomy to thrive in our city through responsible decision-making.
