The Botany by-election is warming up!

At least Jami-Lee has the presence of mind not to take victory for granted, (as well he ought :)

Remember folks – that the FACTS are that the highest polling Councillor from the Howick Ward in the recent Auckland Council elections – was NOT Jami-Lee Ross (despite his ‘powerful’ C & R / National electoral machine), but INDEPENDENT Councillor Sharon Stewart, who beat him by over 4000 votes.

One thing about DIY Kiwi activists, like myself, we ‘get on with it’ and make things happen…………..

I’ve organised three Public Meetings in the Botany electorate, to which I intend to extend invitations to all the other candidates, and give them all a chance to say a few words, outlining their, or their party’s position on privatisation and ‘open, transparent and accountable’ local and central government, and the judiciary.

I will also extend to the other candidates the opportunity to bring their campaign leaflets, and have the opportunity to mix and mingle with the public after the meetings.

This will give the voting public an opportunity to see for themselves where each of the candidates stand on these significant issues.

It will be interesting to see just which candidates do avail themselves of this opportunity? :)

Good to see the Eastern Courier ‘front- paging’ these meetings in their latest publication.
