Been Busy today

I have been busy today helping Councillor Jami-Lee Ross putting up his election signs.

Cr Ross is seeking re-election after a successful term as one of Howick's councillors in the Manulau City Council.

Jami-lee was elected last time as one of the youngest ever councillors at age 18 and has made a great contribution at council level seeking for restraint and financial prudence from the council.

If the way your election hoarding looks gives you some indication of your committment to the ward then Jami-Lee is by far and away the stand out councillor .

The other sitting councillor Sharon Stewart has gone with the budget look and clearly shared costs with her friend Ken Yee the perrennial loser out Howick way. Their signs are truly awful with long winded statement in really tiny font that no-one is going to see unless they cause a traffic accident.

Out and about today it appears to be a one horse race for mayor with only Dick Quax's signs showing anywhere. We still await incumbent Mayor his Royal Highness Sir Barry Curtis to decalre he is standing again.

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.
