Lucky Dunedin: a mayoral candidate prettier than Vic Crone and nuttier than Penny Bright
We met They before. No, that’s not a typo. They was previously in the news about being all huffy against the TPP. Now they is running for mayor.
They is responsible for blocking an elderly woman entering the ANZ bank while protesting earlier this year and has a notorious reputation for being an absolute menace in Dunedin (constant protesting, yelling, chaining herself to fences, glitter-bombing Michael Woodhouse’s office, etc).
As you would expect, this has resulted in a huge Green and radical left following.

Cannabis campaigner and transgender activist confirm bid for Dunedin mayoralty
By Hamish McNeilly
A cannabis campaigner and a transgender activist are taking on the “old boy network” as they run for the Dunedin mayoralty. Both Abe Gray and Scout Barbour-Evans, who made national headlines with two very different Dunedin stories last year, confirmed they were running for the Dunedin mayoralty and a seat on the city council.
● Gray, 34, a curator at the Dunedin-based cannabis museum, made international headlines when the Caversham-based museum listed on Airbnb.
● Barbour-Evans, 21, who goes by the gender-neutral pronoun ‘they’, crowdfunded $400 for the mayoralty and council bid.
