New Zealand’s Dodgiest Local Government Politician – John Leggett

Regular readers will know that Marlborough has a “world class” theatre that costs an arm and a leg to run, as well as massively going over budget. The ratepayer is on the hook for a lot more than originally promised, yet mayoral aspirant John Leggett sticks up for the Theatre in public.

Fortunately there are council staff with integrity who are sick of the cover ups, the over spends and the bleeding of the coffers to fund the theatre. They have provided this audio of John Leggett telling us his true feelings about the theatre.

Not only does John Leggett have some explaining to do, the Marlborough Express has some explaining to do as they were also given this audio and haven’t done anything with it.

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.
