Dick Quax wins by-election

Dick Quax has cleaned out all the opposition in the by-election in Howick ward.

Former Olympic runner Dick Quax has won an Auckland Council seat in his second attempt.

Mr Quax yesterday won the Howick ward byelection called to replace councillor Jami-Lee Ross.

Mr Ross resigned from the council after he won the Botany parliamentary byelection caused by the resignation of National MP Pansy Wong.

Mr Quax, a former Manukau City councillor, won 41 per cent, or 11,600 of the byelection votes.

Well done Dick, now go get stuck into Len Brown and his furtive and sneaky mayoralty.

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.
