We’ve had a few anonymous tips about the draft portfolios. One tipster has promised a full list, we’ll try to get that up asap.
The most interesting thing we’ve heard so far is that Celia is going to give the transport portfolio to Bryan Pepperell. I’m not sure what that says about Celia’s commitment to her light rail plans (especially given Pepperell’s financial conservatism) – but I can hardly imagine anyone in Steven Joyce’s office sitting down to have a chat with Bryan about pushing forward new transport plans.
Does anyone have any tips or predictions for the different portfolios? If Celia shakes up the structure too much it’s going to make guessing quite difficult. No doubt all eyes will be on the prized temporary road closures sub-committee chairmanship.
