Peter Butler is a total dickhead, prone to flashes of anger and outbursts.
Now he has a challenger.
Central Hawke’s Bay businesswoman Alex Walker is throwing her hat into the ring and standing for mayor at this year’s local body elections.
To date, the only other candidate to come forward and announced they will bid for the mayoralty is current CHB mayor Peter Butler.
Ms Walker said she was standing with an aim to providing a young, fresh approach to council leadership in the district.
“My vision is for a vibrant, innovative and energetic community,” she said.
“We have important opportunities facing our district as water and regional investment increases and we need to be ready to make the most of them.
“We need local governance that is sustainable, future-focused, customer friendly, and positive in its leadership of our people.”
