Local Government Success Story – Simon Lusk

8717507Campaign manager and staunch fiscal conservative Simon Lusk managed to pull together a coalition of people to kick out incumbents on the dodgy Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.

The word from Hawkes Bay is that Simon ran a fearless campaign exposing the truth about the ratbag councillors who all got the arse card. No one is ever quite sure how Simon wins campaigns as he reckons publicity gets in the way of fishing and shooting, but some how there huge red signs across Hawkes Bay calling for change, there was a major tractor protest by growers calling for change, a sitting councillor was awarded New Zealand’s Dodgiest Local Body Politician, forty five iwi members spent two days getting the vote out and Simon’s mates all won.  

Simon copped a lot of flack from some dickhead in the local media for running an allegedly negative campaign, but proved unequivocally negative campaigning works in New Zealand.

Expect to see Simon’s name associated with aggressive third party campaigns all over the country in 2016 if useless ratbag councillors and mayors stop listening to their communities.

The left wing and other less effective campaigners (losers actually) like to associate Simon with all sorts of campaigns he isn’t involved with…the latest is he helped me with running Len Brown through. He doesn’t care, because every time they run stories about him he gets more work.

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.
