More bad news for Bob

Well known Christchurch pinko Peter Beck looks likely to be the new councillor in the Burwood Pegasus ward. As a man who was not afraid to have a major fight with his bishop, Beck is not likely to be a loyal sheep in the Christchurch City Council fold.

Outgoing Christ Church Cathedral dean Peter Beck is the highest-polling candidate so far in the Burwood-Pegasus ward by-election.

With 34 per cent of the vote counted, Beck has 4636 votes, David East 2753, Stan Tawa 1619 and Rod Cameron 1457.

    he comes from the same stable as Tim carter, so expect fireworks.

    Here’s hoping that Beck will stand up to be counted – this wil be a short tenure so he will have to hit the ground running..  if not he will go like the rest of them in a re-relection.  But didn’t STAN TAWA do well!  hope he keeps his political aspirations and pursue a place on council.
