Julian Lee’s “tongue in cheek” mayoral candidacy could trigger an expensive by-election for Mackenzie, election experts say.
The Seven Sharp journalist joined the Mackenzie mayoral race in a story for the show on August 15 but failed to withdraw before nominations closed on August 18, he said in a statement issued last week.
The statement, which broke Lee’s three week silence on the issue, said “I would not take the mayoralty if I happened to win the vote”.
I think Mackenzie people should vote for Julian Lee and force him to take the job.
What better Mayor that someone who doesn’t actually want it. No campaign promises to implement. He’ll just do what he thinks is best.
So Vote Lee.
