NZ’s Dodgiest Local Body Candidate – Bruce Smith II


Bruce Smith is running for mayor in Westland. Obviously he thinks the whole place is rooted and only he can fix it.

All he is doing is reinforcing what the tipline has been telling us, council staff have been filing away some of the things Bruce Smith has said so they can get a huge pay out if he is elected.

Local government politicians should work with people, not fight them or sideline them. And they definitely should not be running on a platform of fighting. For running a dopey campaign that will cost Westland voters lots in payouts to staff, Bruce Smith gets a second nomination.

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.
