Weldon for Tamaki?

Mark “Speedo” Weldon may be about to nominate for Tamaki. There have long been rumours of Weldon’s interest in being in a John Key led cabinet.

Mark Weldon is stepping down as chief executive of NZX Ltd, the operator of the New Zealand stock exchange.

NZX has just announced that Weldon told the board he will step down as chief executive in the first half of next year, after nearly ten years in the job.

God knows Tamaki needs a quality candidate and they haven’t had a cabinet minister since Muldoon and parochial interests scotched the last quality candidate in the form of David Kirk.

Interesting times.

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.
