Yes, I get to vote in the local elections. Better my vote than, well anyone else's really (look if you can't be arrogant about your own vote then don't bother).
So here's my run-down of the motley lot that are standing, and a motley lot it is. I can't get enthused about almost any of the candidates. So I figured since blogs are about venting one's opinion, I'd do a bit of my own. Of course because voting is by STV you get to rank the candidates, which means you don't need to rank anyone you find particularly loathsome (after all being ranked 8th is worth more than not being ranked at all).
Remember, one of the most important things for Wellingtonians should be remembering what happened in Christchurch could happen again. Wellington needs a Mayor and Council that can take on central government bureaucracy and be for private property rights. It's a shame it doesn't have enough standing who do.
