Before he decided to stand for Auckland Mayor, I had a fairly positive opinion of Dick Hubbard. But he seems to be going off the rails big time.
Aaron Bhatnagar has a link to the SST story that Hubbard is refusing to attend the Auckland Mayoral Debate on the Holmes Show on Monday. I can’t ever recall a political candidate turning down a debate before, when they are not the incumbent.
Hubbard won’t appear on Holmes, won’t turn up to public meetings, complains about a blog being mean to him, and sues a newspaper for its unflattering portrayal of him.
I never thought I would say these words, but I think I would now vote for Christine Fletcher ahead of Dick Hubbard, if I was in Auckland.
