Nats Auckland Leadership race

Late last year National Party Regional Chairman Scott Simpson announced that he would not be re-standing for his position of regional chair within the party. Trans-Tasman has a brief article on the up coming leadership race:

Auckland Nats are positioning for a change of leadership in their regional organisation. Alistair Bell, a former Deputy Regional Chair and Beehive staffer under Jenny Shipley, is positioning to take over from Scott Simpson. His challenger is South Auckland’s Roger Burrill, whose switch of support from Warren Kyd in Hunua to Judith Collins prior to the 2002 election rankled many local Nats.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
