Aaron Hawkins is 35 years old, a Green Party member, vegetarian, cannot drive and often hitch-hikes to work.
He's also now Dunedin's mayor.
Hawkins, a two-term city councillor, secured the seat from a field of 14 hopefuls, taking the reins from Dave Cull who did not seek re-election. Dunedin was one of 11 councils using a Single Transferable Vote (STV) system, which requires voters to rank their preferred candidates.
