Politician of the Week – Julie Hardaker

Julie Hardaker is copping flak from people who like to spend other peoples money, she is standing strong:

Ms Hardaker urged councillors not to back down from the first of 22 areas in which they have committed to save $14.5 million in the next three years.

“Get real people,” she said. “Don’t falter … I’m imploring you to stick to the game plan or the community won’t thank us.”

She said it was time for the council to cease being the only provider of community services and grants and and to work alongside other agencies.

Pity Len Brown can’t do the same with Auckland’s out of control spending.

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.
