I am not voting for a mayor and struggling to find names to tick for any of the other FIVE selection processes. God knows why there are so many. There are a couple of no nonsense experienced types who hold mild appeal but when I trawled through all the electoral bumf last night I was defeated by the inanity of the proclamations. So many people with 'vision' and 'passion'. We are fair drowning in a sea of these self-confessed attributes.
Then I got excited. This morning. At last a billboard that didn't make me baulk. A billboard that even made me smile and feel like there is a upside to the tiresome charade of democracy local body elections have become.
I can nominate a Hutt City candidate for the same ticket;
Now there's vision and passion in spades.
And as I stepped out with madam candidate this morning I reflected that her public speaking abilities really are second to none.
Any other nominations?
F for consistency
