Whaleoil Radio Summer Series Interviews – Celia Wade-Brown

Celia Wade-Brown, Mayor of WellingtonYesterday I spoke with Wellington Mayor, Celia Wade-Brown, in her office in Wellington.

We talked about her stunning election victory, a victory that not even the much vaunted iPredict managed to predict. She reveals some secrets of her campaign strategy. In addition we talk about wider Wellington city amalgamation, public transport, climate change and of course cycling.

Celia Wade-Brown was awarded the awarded the Whaleoil Politician of the year award because of her stunning victory against all odds, though interestingly Celia herself always thought she could win.

If you are going to have a left wing Mayor of a city then Celia Wade-Brown probably is the best of the bunch, with sound practical business and IT experience and a small tolerance for bullshit.

I hope you enjoy the interview:

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.
