J.T. is to stand for Mayoralty.

Good news, for John Banks, John Tamihere is going to stand for the Supercity Mayoralty.

I think John at the very least would make a great councillor especially from his power base out West.

By standing for Mayor though he has placed the dagger against Len Brown’s heart. The is looking like splitting its vote in so many ways that it isn’t feasible for Len Brown to win, currently with JT and Ewen Gilmour standing and Mike Lee also expected to toss his hat in the ring.

It appears that the Centre Right is holding strong and united whilst the left is marginalised and factionalised each eating the others own supporters.

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.
