I sent this message to this man on 18 July and have followed up twice and he has ignored my messages. I for one will not be giving him my vote:

"I take it you had no objection to the obscene pay rate given to the new CEO.
Can you perhaps explain to me in simple terms why there was no one local or in New Zealand capable of doing the job?

Thank you and I look forward to your reply.

As an aside did you also vote in favour of the levy for the monstrosity in the city centre known as the Cathedral.?

The roads around New Brighton are appalling as you well know. New Brighton is dying also as you well know but it would be most disturbing for me as a ratepayer to digest that you were in favour of these things."

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.
