This was the text of the blog that the guy Richard e-mailed out, I just forwarded it with a sarcastic reply.  
 
As you say I’m sure the below will have a huge effect on how people vote

Nick,

         Thank you for this fascinating, in-depth, insight into myself (and the others).  Much appreciated.

Could you now please let me know your qualifications, research and experience enabling you to make such in-depth judgments and predictions. 

      I’m sure they will have a major effect on how many people now vote!

Thanks and Kind Regards,

Jack.

Rob Goulden – wants spending reigned in;

Nick KellyMarxist fruitcake;

John McGrath – restaurateur with best election website;

Bryan Pepperellself described bicycle philosopher;

Kerry Prendergast – should win with benefit of incumbency;

Helene Ritchie – is standing;

Jack Ruben – apparently outraged;

Nick Wang – first concern isn’t Wellington.

Hi I’ve blogged, somewhat briefly, on the Mayoral race.http://100wordblog.wordpress.com/2007/09/10/wellington-city-council-elections-2007/ Feel free to comment and well done to those of you who took the time to set up an election website. Regards

Richard

  1. I’m new seriously concerned about the reading and comprehension skill-levels of publicly elected local-body politicians. First the ongoing Kyle Chapman debacle (though admittedly not elected — yet), and now this.

    Did these people not go to school? How do they ever manage with all those reports, and meeting agendas, and so on.

  2. Well, Jack R is getting on a bit. This interweb thing might be a bit new fangled.

    I wonder whether we need full time councillors rather than the part-timers. Might attract a better calibre of candidate.
