Southern Lens - Q'town Election Special

by Peter Newport - Sep 18, 2020

No notes, no mud slinging, no politicking. Those are the rules for this Southern Lens election special where the two key Southland candidates - Jon Mitchell, Labour and Joseph Mooney, National - spend an hour with Crux Managing Editor Peter Newport to hammer out the key issues affecting Queenstown.

We tackle all of the hot topics - airport expansion, over tourism, growth, A J Hackett's $10 million from the taxpayer, water quality, political scandals - it's all there.

Made Possible by NZ On Air. Shot and edited by James Haskard, Sound - Ian Masterton, Lighting - Justin Mcrae.

Thanks to Sofitel, Queenstown.

Next week, Friday, September 25th, we spend an hour with the two main Waitaki candidates to debate the main issues affecting Wanaka and Cromwell.

See our links below for responses from the other Southland candidates - no response was received from Robert Wilson of Advance NZ.
