J.T. is to stand for Mayoralty.

Good news, for John Banks, John Tamihere is going to stand for the Supercity Mayoralty.

I think John at the very least would make a great councillor especially from his power base out West.

By standing for Mayor though he has placed the dagger against Len Brown’s heart. The is looking like splitting its vote in so many ways that it isn’t feasible for Len Brown to win, currently with JT and Ewen Gilmour standing and Mike Lee also expected to toss his hat in the ring.

It appears that the Centre Right is holding strong and united whilst the left is marginalised and factionalised each eating the others own supporters.
