Pro-smacking campaigner joins Auckland mayoralty race
Tue, 22 Jun 2010 6:20p.m.
3 News understands a new candidate is about to join the race to be mayor of Auckland's new supercity.
Property manager Colin Craig, the man who bankrolled last November's so-called 'March for Democracy' to the tune of $450,000.
The 41-year old worked with lobby groups Family First and the Sensible Sentencing Trust on the protest against the anti-smacking legislation.
Turnout for the march was smaller than expected with only around 5,000 people attending, despite the advertising blitz.

What is the connection between the role that a City Councillor would have in the new Auckacland supercity and the current child smacking laws?

I have noticed Lightseed that they tend to have a VERY different story on at 6 as opposed to whats often written here.

kiwi if you follow 3news they make a lot of news up, they never apologise for the stories that never prove true, but act like they know something for the very few that do.

Hang on. Your headline says a new candidate joins the race... Yet in the article you say you 'understand' (note no source supplied) that a new candidate is ABOUT to join... So which is it, hes joined or you think hes going to join?
