NZ’s dodgiest LBP Nominee – Steve Dixon


Gore ratbag Steve Dixon

Another ratbag who thinks it is ok to bash women…and stand for council.

The Gore district councillor convicted of assaulting his former partner and her teenage daughter says he is still mulling over his future.

It is almost three months since Steve Dixon’s colleagues called on him to resign.

The Mataura ward representative has maintained he would make a decision about his political future once the council adopted a rating review, which has major implications for his ward.

While the review was adopted this week, Mr Dixon said yesterday he was still deciding whether to stay or go. 

He said he had “had a lot of other things” on his mind since his conviction and a council vote of no confidence in early August.

Despite being asked to resign he never did and is back in the race again for another go at the trough at the Gore District Council in the Mataura Ward.

I don’t know why people who bash women think it is ok to stand for public office. Still sounds like he is perfectly well qualified to stand for office in the National party.
