* Three times mayor of the former East Coast Bays City, he was third in the North Shore mayoral race last time. He is president of the OneNZ political party.

Q: What would you do if elected?

A: Reforms - I'm standing because I have no confidence in the other candidates doing what's urgently needed - tight financial control, a clean-out of the bureaucracy and return of the style and quality of the North Shore. It's my absolute duty of honour to see that every dollar is spent with wisdom.
