Will the Mayor in the Chair tell us about Volare

From the Mayor’s press release;

Auckland Mayor Len Brown wants to hear Aucklanders’ hopes, dreams and concerns about their community in the first of a series of regular events allowing people to get face to face with their mayor.

The mayor is inviting Aucklanders to drop by Aotea Square any time between 12.30pm and 1.30pm on Thursday 11 November for his first Mayor in the Chair session.

In these sessions, Aucklanders are welcome to pull up a chair and ask the mayor a question or share their thoughts with him.

“I’m going to get out into the villages of Auckland, and touch base with the locals. I want to get a good, first-hand feel for the people and the issues of different communities, in their own words.”

The mayor initiated the Mayor in the Chair sessions in Manukau City, and is keen to extend the concept throughout the region.

I thought I might go and pull up a chair and share this poem with him.

The Mayor is in the Chair,

It needs to be made clear,

So all the the facts can be laid bare.

All the lies are too much to hear

We need to know, because it was dear.

Lest you forget, Mayor in the Chair

We all do still care about Volare.

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.
