“We wanted to cover the local body elections in a way that people could engage with,” says Russell Brown. “We clearly couldn’t accommodate every candidate or commentator, so we’ve gone for interesting people. Unfortunately, this decision ruled out all the 2016 mayoral candidates bar Chloe Swarbrick.

“We’re delighted to offer a warm Ponsonby welcome to Ōtara-Papatoetoe local board chair Efeso Collins and Paula Bold-Wilson, one of an unprecedented four Māori candidates standing for the Henderson-Massey local board. And we’re pleased to have local lad Bill Ralston, who is standing for Auckland Council in the keenly-contested Prego ward.

“They’re joined by Albert-Eden-Roskill councillor Cathy Casey - whose daughter Alex starred in last month’s IRL - broadcast jester Chang Hung, whose bid for the Waitemata local board is quite serious, and transport troublemaker Patrick Reynolds.

"The breaks will be filled by DJ sets from Anthonie Tonnon, who has written more songs about local body politics than anyone in the history of New Zealand music, probably. And to cap it all off – we’ve brought Charlotte Ryan out of media retirement!"
