Dunedin Candidates

We sent a survey to all candidates with a variety of questions on climate change mitigation and adaptation, housing and urban design, transport, and other environmental issues. We also interviewed mayoral candidates in person. A summary of their responses can be found here. We assessed the surveys and graded their responses on a 1 to 5 scale. A total score was then taken and a grade provided.
