Empire building by Dalziel in Christchurch

Bob Parker was a bit of an arse, but he only had two staff, there was a mayors office secretary and he had a PA.

Lianne Dalziel meanwhile has appointed (according to an email sent around on Wednesday confirming the appointments)

Chief of Staff – Cate Brett
Press Secretary – Chris Rennie
Senior Advisor – Eric Assendelft
Community Advisor – Nicola Shirlaw
Visits and Ceremonial Co-ordinator – Louise Walton
Information Co-ordinator – Ruth Close. 

On top of that it is reported that she intends to also appoint a driver to cart her troughing self around.

Thats a 300% increase so far and she hasn’t finished!

So Lianne Dalziel’s first priorities on being elected seem to be to build a mayoral office of Len Brown type proportions.
