Hawkes Bay Home-wrecker takes one in the chook

Home-wrecker Anna Lorck

Anna Lorck, the Hawkes Bay Home-wrecker, has lost another election:

Former Hastings mayor Lawrence Yule is on the cusp of winning the Tukituki electorate- ripping it from longtime Labour campaigner Anna Lorck.

Yule quit the mayoralty earlier this year and announced his bid for the Hawke’s Bay electorate, coming into direct competition with Labour’s Lorck who was campaigning to take the seat from National incumbent Craig Foss.

Foss announced earlier this year he would not be standing in this year’s election, leaving the candidacy open for the first time since 2005.

Yule almost immediately threw his hat in the ring.

He previously said that while others hoped he might become Prime Minister, he had his eye solely on becoming a cabinet minister with a focus on environment portfolios.

He first stood for mayor in 2001 and had been in the role for a decade.

Up until July he was also president of Local Government New Zealand.

Hours after counting began on Saturday night, Yule was in the lead, with 14, 064 votes- 52 per cent of the votes.

Lorck trailed behind with 10,941 votes.

Poor old Damon, he had his nomination forms all set for the mayoralty, hoping his missus was going to bugger off to entertain the male members of Labour’s caucus in Wellington.

His missus will probably over-ride him now and try and inflict herself on Hastings as mayor.
