C&R's not so secret weapon

Computerworld > Citizens & Ratepayers’ secret weapon: Maurice Williamson

There is an article in Computerworld that features a couple of mates of mine, Maurice Williamson and Nicholas Albrecht.

The article is about C&R's software platform used to target voters in crucial wards in order to secure the council. The system was written by Maurice and gave an immense amount of useful information that allowed candidates to get out the vote in a very qualified way.

You would have to say it was effective because C&R secured 11 of the 19 seats on offer and some in "Tiger" country which shows that with good information systems and quality candidates you can achieve stunning results.

At least one other "ticket" used a system that has been touted around the market place for significant dollars and that ticket got no-where, was it the software or the candidates, hmmm, probably a little bit of both.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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