Former Northland MP and serving High Commissioner to the Cook Island’s John Carter plans to contest the Far North Mayoralty.
. . . On the top of his list of concerns is disunity among local body leaders in Northland and what he sees as resultant lack of progress.
“I love the Far North, I am deeply aware of what a wonderful place it is and how many talented people live here, and I know it should be doing better.
“I also feel that my many years representing the area have given me the knowledge, skills and contacts to provide the unifying leadership needed to achieve that.” . . .
He was a very popular MP which will give him a head start in the contest for mayor.
