The National Business Review covered my response to the former Labour Party leader’s recent launch and ran a poll based off my call that he should stand down from Parliament to avoid a conflict and focus fully on Auckland as I am doing.
It’s behind their paywall, but Sally Lindsay reports that 59% agreed, with only 15% opposing and 26% saying he should do so only if campaigning distracts from his taxpayer funded duties.

The Monday after his launch Sean Plunkett on Radio Live caught him conducting Mayoral interviews from his taxpayer funded electorate office.
