Meet National’s Otaki candidate

Newshub reports:

Despite starring in an air force rock video that has clocked up almost a million views online, Tim Costley hopes his legacy lies not in music but in politics.

Costley, a former aide to Prince William, is National’s candidate for Ōtaki.

The turn to politics comes after a 20-year career in the Air Force and follows an announcement last year that current National MP for Ōtaki, former Minister of Primary Industries Nathan Guy, would not be seeking reelection.

Costley admits that he didn’t quite know the effect the video – which can be found on YouTube under the title “Jet Pilot music video” – would have.

Good to see a candidate with a sense of humour.
