    Aucklands Super Mayor

    Meanwhile there has been debate about the merits of the spending cap on super-city mayoral candidates.

    Under proposed legislation, those seeking the job would be allowed to spend up to $580,000 during the official three-month campaign period.

    The current cap is $70,000.

    North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams said it was a staggering increase that would mean only the rich or those with the support of political parties would be able to stand.

    Under the bill there would be no limits on spending before the three month period.

    That's an increase of $510,000, say these candidates spent $70,000, but had the potential to raise that much more, giving it to charitys in the area would surely boost their profile (and be better spent).

    They should just appoint Paul Henry and be done with it.

    No way, we'd rather gladly hand him over to the Christchurchies.

    Well he's a more interesting TV personality than sideshowbob parker. If we must have a clown at least we could have a funny one. John Banks is fucking hilarious...but DO YOU WANT HIM?

    I'd vote for master5o1.

    In fact I'd donate $1000 towards any campaign that suggests he be mayor, willing or not.
