Rob Thomas, the Waitemata Tosser

Meet Rob Thomas, a 32 year old tosser from Waitemata who claims to have spent 14 years in local government.

Auckland Council election contender Rob Thomas admits claiming incorrectly in an official candidates’ booklet that he worked 14 years for the cities of Wellington and Westminster.

He has confirmed working only two years for those cities, but says he has spent almost 14 years in local government, from joining Auckland’s former youth council in 1998 to his past three years as a Waitemata Local Board member.

A simple punctuation mistake, or a clear case of lying on your CV to the voters about what you’ve actually done? Eating free fruit at the youth council meetings doesn’t really count as local government work.

Check out his biography on his website.  

“Despite being 32 years old, I have dedicated almost half my life driving improvements in local government. I started my community service 14 years ago as the Chairperson of the Auckland City Youth Council, raising $23,000 for youth concerts.

I have worked for Auckland City Council on the Britomart Transport Interchange and Libraries, Wellington City Council implementing business improvements and at the City of Westminster in London monitoring children at risk. I was successfully elected onto the Auckland Council Waitemata Local Board in 2010 with 7,000 votes. My portfolios on the board include governance into events, parks, transport and community grants.

I represent the local board on the newly formed Eden Terrace Business Association “Uptown”. I have a proven track record of progressive success in local government: – “

He certainly likes the use of the word “I”, “my” and “me”. Over 17 uses in three paragraphs of text.

Loving the last line as well – “It is my life-long ambition to be Mayor of Auckland.”

A clear case of tosser  if ever there was.

    I’m really starting to tire of people who are in politics because it’s their lifelong ambition to get to the top in politics. What you want me to give you my vote so you can fulfil a childhood fantasy? That’s really not how it is supposed to work.

      Precisely!

      Absolutely agree with your comment. What is it with these people that they believe starting from the junior trough and then have some entitlement to move on to a larger one. Current local body voting stats show that these nobodies are likely to make council. Not so long ago people voted councilors in on them having achieved something in life and therefore being likely to provide some valued judgement on key issues. Today all we are offered is a bunch of self indulgent troughers who are confident that their success is guaranteed by the apathy of the local voters. The system needs to change!

    Tosser? This guy isn’t a tosser.
    He’s a typical pantie waist girls blouse trougher.

    Fucking youth councils and monitoring children at risk. Who the fuck gave this snot nosed gimp the credentials to monitor anything more relevant than where his prick was going?
    His own statements..I have spent…blah blah which actually reads as if you convert Trougher language to the English language as “I have spent my whole life doing sweet fuck all in preparation for all the time I can continue to do sweet fuck all but be well paid for it by gullible rate and taxpayers as I have prepared myself fully to have the thick skin of the professional politician and hereby declare my lifelong ambition is to feed at the trough of other peoples labour!”
