New Zealand’s Dodgiest Local Government Politician Awards
By Cameron Slater
With two weeks until the local government voting papers are mailed out it is time to kick off our dodgiest local government politician competition again.
Who are the rooters, boozers, money wasters, drink drivers and assorted criminals who think they should stick their nose in the public trough?
Who are the incumbent candidates who are so useless that they couldn’t get a job in the real world and only stay standing because they need the money?
Who are the people with appalling records in business or with public money who want to get their hands on more public money?
If you want to nominate a ratbag for the competition please email the tipline.
We already have some nominees, and we are working on a boozy mayoral candidate who made an arse of himself in Japan, and a boozer and a rooter who played away in Hong Kong.

Insiders invited to share city’s stories
By Nigel Benson
The Dunedin City Council will launch the first stage of its Brand Dunedin marketing strategy today. The “Insiders’ Dunedin” campaign is inviting residents to come forward with Dunedin stories which will “stimulate a sense of parochialism” and engage people. The subsequent stories will be placed on a website and used to promote the city in local, domestic and international advertising campaigns.

Dunedin residents are encouraged to visit www.insidersdunedin.co.nz with stories, videos and images, plus help identify the city’s local characters and “hidden gems”.

People can also write to the Otago Daily Times with their stories at PO Box 517 with “Insiders’ Dunedin” on the envelope.

DCC city marketing team leader Jennifer Hooker yesterday told the ODT that the campaign would be promoted throughout the greater Dunedin area starting today.
