What problems do young voters in Gisborne face?

From Morning Report, 8:17 am on 25 August 2017

For young voters in Gisborne, the problems they'd like fixed in their city include the growing number of homeless, the prevalence of drugs and underage drinking, and the pollution of the city's beaches. 

But many admit they're not taking much notice of the election - and probably won't vote. 

The Wireless journalist Max Towle is travelling from Cape Reinga to Bluff finding out what issues matter to young people in big cities and small towns.

Yesterday he travelled to Whakatane and Gisborne, and filed this report for us.
