NZ Herald: Only Mark Thomas Experienced

The NZ Herald’s editorial this week bemoaned the state of the Auckland mayoral race. It said the large number of candidates for the Auckland mayoralty (19) and the lack of clear identification wree both problems.

It did┬ácomment that “local government experience would be a reasonable pre-requisite for mayor but only Mark Thomas appears to have had any.”

And it mused: “Does a parliamentary veteran have the vigour, enthusiasm and panache to lead the city well?”
