Parker to seek third term in Christchurch
Sat, 25 Aug 2012 1:33p.m.
Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker will seek a third term in office at next year's local body election.
The former television presenter confirmed his intention to stand in an interview with The Press newspaper.
Mr Parker was elected in October 2007 after the retirement of Garry Moore and was re-elected in 2010.
He has led the city through the traumatic period in which it was devastated by earthquakes.
No one else has publicly signalled their interest in the mayoralty.

Interesting choice of file photo - obviously this journalist supports Mr Parker. Collar turned up in his typical poseurish style.

What cheek, thinking that he deserves (or can win) the mayoralty for a third time. His council has been an absolute disgrace with its money-wasting, factionalism and secrecy not to mention its contempt for democracy.

Wonder if the ageing Jim will stand this time. He would be just wonderful for stamina in an emergency like Bob was eh?

I wonder if he'll promise to be "open, transparent and accountable" this time?
