Councillors Jen Nickel (Waikato Regional) and Sarah Thomson (Hamilton City) in the Free FM studio

It’s been just over a month since the election which saw both Jennifer Nickel and Sarah Thomson elected to council for the first time. I invited them into the Free FM studio (in what we hope is a regular thing) to hear about how they’ve found the first month on the job… what’s induction like and what roles have they been given?

Jen is chair of the Climate action committee at the Waikato Regional Council and Sarah is deputy of the Environment committee at Hamilton City Council. These are both new committees – set up due to calls during the election for these issues to be a priority. They talk about the opportunities to work together and what is on the cards for 2020.

Listen to my interview with Jennifer during the election period here or my interview with Sarah on Free Choice here if you want to know more about their background and priorities if elected.
