Invercargill’s mayor, Sir Tim Shadbolt, is storing personal items – including furniture, mattresses and a large appliance still in bubble wrap – in council-owned buildings across the city.
The items and their general whereabouts have been confirmed by deputy mayor Nobby Clark, who says he volunteered his time to help Shadbolt get on top of his “hoarding”.
But the mayor has hit back, saying he still uses many of the items and does not appreciate the help.
“During the past 28 years I have accumulated many items in the course of my position,” Shadbolt said.
Then store tham at your own effing place.
