Sideshow Bob has managed to get one of his faithful followers into the position of Christchurch deputy mayor. You could say its her reward for three years of unquestioning loyalty to the man in the orange safety jacket.
Come on down Ngaire Button!
Ms Button certainly likes to rewrite history.
During the election campaign she claimed that she would 'continue to work towards prudent financial management in an effort to keep rates down leaving more money in the pockets of the people.'
This is the same Ngaire Button who voted to bailout failed property developer Dave Henderson to the tune of $17 million.
Button also stayed well away from the facts when she claimed that she was 'passionate about issues which affect the well-being of our families and always advocate strongly on their behalf'.
The 'passionate' Ms Button though voted to increase council rents by 24 percent and she voted to cut funding to community groups.
And now she's deputy mayor. Terrific.
