Danny Cancian announces Tauranga mayoral run

Former Bella Vista director Danny Cancian. Watch the video below.

The former director of the failed Bella Vista homes development has announced that he will be running for mayor.

In a video posted to Facebook, Danny Cancian announced that he will be running for the position of Tauranga Mayor and/or elected member at large of Tauranga City.

“I am not going to pretend that I am someone I am not. I am not going to make promises pre-election that I do not stick to.”

In the video, Danny goes on to explain what he hopes to achieve if he gets elected.

He says the only way to make a change is to vote out the 11 current members of council and get fresh new faces sitting in the seats.

Danny was at the forefront of the Bella Vista debacle in The Lakes, which has cost the city $14 million - $10.5 million of which was defrayed by an insurance payout.

Deputy Mayor Kelvin Clout has also announced that he will be running.

While he hasn’t officially indicated he will be running, it’s rumoured that current mayor Greg Brownless will also be throwing his hat in the ring.

Questions that will need answering with all candidates coming forward. Is Mr Cancia running a conflict of interest? Can someone with criminal convictions run for office? If Mr Cancia was to win, would he forfeit his salary like Jon Key did? Will there be a failed/former political party member add his name in the hat with Mr Brownless?

Yeah Right

Is this a new Tui add. Surely Tauranga doesn’t need any more Bella Vista’s. No bullying? What about excessive force in China. Forget it!

Can you run as Mayor when you have a criminal record?
