The South Auckland Mayoral Debate Quiz: can you do better than our mayoral candidates?

Yesterday morning five leading mayoral candidates headed to Mangere’s Ngā Whare Waatea to debate the issues facing South Auckland. Mana magazine editor Leonie Hayden was there.

Throughout the debate, a pop quiz was held to test the candidates’ general knowledge of South Auckland.

The only rules were:

No referring the matter back to central government.

No blaming the previous mayor.

Take the quiz below to see how you stack up to our mayoral race frontrunners.
