The Dom Post reports that Celia Wade-Brown has nominated Holden Astra fan Ian McKinnon as Deputy Mayor. Thank God, Andy Foster is a bit of a maverick and cannot always be counted on as a team player, for example the Kilbirnie Indoor Sports Centre.
“New Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown has nominated Ian McKinnon to be her deputy for the next three years.
Mr McKinnon was deputy mayor to Kerry Prendergast over the past three years.
Ms Wade-Brown said Mr Mckinnon’s commitment to the position and understanding of the role would complement her strengths.
Councillors will vote on the nomination on Wednesday at the first meeting of the newly-elected council.”
The first task of the former Eton headmaster is to give Ray Ahipene-Mercer the cane for telling porkies to the Dom Post.
