NZ’s dodgiest LBP Nominee – Andrew Craig

A.CraigHere we go, the first nomination for NZ’s dodgiest local body politician:


I nominate triple dipper Conservative Party wannabe Andrew Craig, who coincidentally shares the same surname as Conservative Party leader Colin Craig.

Andrew Craig is running for election for the Howick, Orakei and Papakura local boards. None of these wards actually neighbour each other, so it looks like a brazen attempt to simply get elected anywhere and to as many local boards as possible.

I guess if he gets elected to 3 boards, he clocks $100k on the ratepayer’s largesse and then can campaign fulltime for Colin.

I wonder if he might be Colin’s brother?  

Also of note is that Thomas O’Rourke of the CCCP (Colin Craig Conservative Party) is also running for three wards – Henderson-Massey, Whau and Wellsford. Andrew Craig

Dodgy behaviour from a dodgy political party. So much for preaching fiscal responsibility – they deliberately run candidates to rort the process!

I have to see this chumps signs all over Howick…I must get a photo…they are vertical and the candidate standing just like the photo above. He looks like the proverbial spare prick at a the wedding.

If you look at th photo closely you can see he has the body of a half-sucked throatie and his shirt collar is at least three sizes too large for his scrawny neck.

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.
