Mayoral bid cost Chin $43,446
By Chris Morris
Former Dunedin mayor Peter Chin poured $43,446.40 into his failed bid to hold on to the mayoral robes, figures reveal.
This year’s spending was nearly double the $24,853 Mr Chin spent during the run-up to the last local body elections in 2007, but less than the $52,662.36 he threw at the 2004 campaign to win the mayoralty for the first time.
