John Terris has lost to David Odgen in Lower Hutt. Ogden won by around 1800 votes. Ogden should be quite good, and looks to have a good Council.
In Palmerston North Heather Tanguay has won. I know Heather from when she was a local executive director for Red Cross, and I worked in the national office.
In Hamilton the incumbent Mayor, David Braitwaite, has been crushed coming 4th with only 2,302 votes. Michael Redman has won with 19,126. Martin Eilliott who accussed Redman of having a small penis (how does he know?) got 6,706 and thank God convicted fraudster Ewwan Wilson only got 4,761.
