I’ve been going through the Auckland Council election expense and donation returns over the past few days since they were released on the Auckland Council website.
There are some interesting titbits to digest.
Greg Presland, who is now putting his name in the hat for Labour in New Lynn didn’t declare a single donation or contribution but spent over $40,000 getting himself elected.
If he wins the selection that would seem a total waste of resources. Presumably, he is now spending even more of his own money trying to secure Labour’s selection. Life must be good as a small community law office.
