New Zealand’s Dodgiest Local Government Politician Awards

pigs-feeding-at-trough

With two weeks until the local government voting papers are mailed out it is time to kick off our dodgiest local government politician competition again.

Who are the rooters, boozers, money wasters, drink drivers and assorted criminals who think they should stick their nose in the public trough?  

Who are the incumbent candidates who are so useless that they couldn’t get a job in the real world and only stay standing because they need the money?

Who are the people with appalling records in business or with public money who want to get their hands on more public money?

If you want to nominate a ratbag for the competition please email the tipline.

We already have some nominees, and we are working on a boozy mayoral candidate who made an arse of himself in Japan, and a boozer and a rooter who played away in Hong Kong.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
