A friend’s email yesterday inlcuded an attachment saying Suzanne Prentice would be holding a media conference about the local body elections on Monday morning.
I added two and two and came up with a number indicating this meant she’d be challenging Tim Shadbolt in the election for Invercargill’s mayor.
I was tempted to blog about that but held back because I thought it would be unfair to the friend. However, the Southland Times had no such scruples and has a story saying Prentice is set to challenge Shadbolt.
The paper is running a poll which has 108 of 226 votes saying she has a strong chance and only 45 votes giving her no chance.
