Just spotted John McGrath, mayoral candidate for Wellington, supervising 4, maybe 5 workers erecting a campaign sign on Khandallah Road. He stood there, looking very grim with his arms folded, not keen on destroying the crease of his pressed jeans, or muddying his manicured hands.
I can’t imagine Carl Gifford standing back. In fact, Carl’s billboards look handcrafted all the way – large sheets of painted industrial ply with colourful caricatures of the candidate. And I’m imagining he himself drove the posts into the ground and nailed the placards.
1 point to Gifford, minus 1 to McGrath.
