What is it about being a mayoral candidate for Whanganui? Is it obligatory to be a nasty piece of work?
In the aftermath of the various accusations being thrown about between Michael Laws and mayoral candidate Jevan Goulter, it turns out that Goulter leaked to the media emails between Laws and a former P-addict.
If that is not enough, a quick Google search will give Whanganui voters all the reasons they need not to vote for him.
Goulter is absurdly young (21), and clearly lacks both sense and maturity. He is a child trying to play an adult's game, and is making a fool of himself. His muck-throwing makes him no better than the man he has targeted.
There is a saying that people get the politicians they deserve. But I can't believe any town really deserves a clown like Goulter, even as a mayoral candidate.
