National’s Candidates College, Ctd

Candidates College attendees should ask the President and the General Manager the following questions:

  1. What do I get if I run for a red seat?
  2. Will running in a red seat improve my list position future elections?
  3. Will running in a red seat improve my chances of winning a blue seat nomination in the future?
  4. Will running in a red seat mean National will help my career outside of politics?
  5. What chance do I have of getting in on the list?
  6. Will new candidates be ranked ahead of existing MPs?
  7. Will the party help me secure a blue seat nomination?

Candidates should ask the five candidates who were unsuccessful in 2011 these questions too. Those people are Claudette Hauiti, Leonie Hapeta, Jonathan Fletcher, Paul Foster-Bell, and Jo Hayes. These people have lived through a red seat campaign, so will tell you the truth about what National will do for you if you take one for the team.

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.
