Carter to contest Far North Mayoralty

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.

One Response to Carter to contest Far North Mayoralty

  1. I met John a couple of times,he came across as a real local politician, interested in making his bit of paradise a better place. What fascinated me most was he was giving two talks and inbetween sat on his blackberry working so hard replying to emails, made me tired watching! Good on him, he would have my vote if I was fortunate enough to live there
