The Tasman Leader will bring readers weekly coverage of who is standing for the district's wards and community boards in the weeks leading up to the election. The Motueka Community Board has a dozen candidates standing for four positions, but no elec- tion will be needed for the three Moutere-Waimea ward seats because no new nominations have been received. The three nominees in the Moutere-Waimea ward are the sitting councillors -- Tim King, Trevor Norriss and Brian Ensor. Nominations closed last Friday, and nearly 50 people have put their names forward for mayor, councillor and community board positions in October's elections. There are five mayoral candidates, with the incumbent Richard Kempthorne looking for a third term as mayor against sitting councillor Kit Maling, private ambulance provider Maxwell Clark, local television station owner Gary Watson, and Jester Cafe owner Steve Richards. The Motueka Community Board will be the most hotly contested public office, with 12 candidates standing for four positions. Details of all nominees will be available on the Tasman District Council website. Voting forms for the postal vote will be arriving in registered electors' mailboxes from September 20, and completed forms must be returned by noon on Saturday October 12. It is not too late to enrol to vote in the elections. Call 0800 367 656, register at any New Zealand PostShop, or go online to elections.org.nz. Forms are also available at any council office. Hotel errs again The Hotel Motueka has again been caught in an underage liquor sale sting. A controlled purchase operation checked on alcohol sales at 26 busi- nesses in Nelson and Tasman last Friday. It was the second time the Hotel Motueka has been caught selling alcohol to a minor. Nelson Bays Liquor Licensing Sergeant Steve Savage said the Hotel Motueka was previously caught selling alcohol to 16-year-old girls on May 23. The managers involved in the last incident are still serving their suspensions for that breach, but this incident would suggest that the message hasn't got through,'' he said.
