The Herald reports:
Property developer and brothel owner John Chow says he’s interested in running for the Auckland mayoralty.
Mayoral elections in the country’s biggest city are coming up next year. Incumbent Mayor Phil Goff is expected to run again.
But Chow – who owns the Chow Group with his brother Michael – has indicated his interest.
Chow said on social media site LinkedIn that one in four of Aucklanders were Asian.
“Is it time for the Asian community of Auckland to nominate a candidate for mayor? I could be arm-twisted to put my name forward, if there’s enough interest,” Chow said.
Chow is a very hard nosed businessman. If he was Mayor I’m damn sure he could find efficiencies beyond the 0.04% Phil Goff has managed.
“New Zealand has allowed me to dream big and I have taken that opportunity to work my way from running a fish n chip shop with my brother to running a multi-million dollar business spanning varied industries. It is for this reason I believe I know how to help Aucklanders be great again,” he said.
Make Auckland Great Again – I think one can get some caps saying that!
