John Tamihere is standing for Mayor of Waitakere

Filed under: General — Julie @ 4:50 pm Thu 23rd August 2007

John Tamihere will run for the mayoralty in the October 2007 elections. John Tamihere is presently the Waipareira Trust chief executive and has been speaking up for men’s rights and will be speaking at Family First’s NZ forum on the family meeting in October 2007 on the topic of ‘Engaging the political process’ He was an MP for the Labor Party until Ian Wishart had coffee with him. lol


  1. I would vote for Mr Tamihere but due to councel stuff ups have no voting papers, this being another goverment waste of time, and its not for the want of asking for my voting papers. I think john would make a good job at running waitakere if given the chance. From what I have seen he has strong family values which is what our city needs

  2. I am for John too. But there are so many candidates that it is going to be hard to predict. He is well known and does work a lot in the community and the trust is benefiting us all. I hope he wins.

    What a shame you can’t vote.
