Bounty for Tamihere billboard bashers
|12 Aug 2019 15:00 PM|
Auckland mayoral candidate John Tamihere is offering his volunteers a reward if they can identify who is defacing his billboards.
Mr Tamihere says his campaign put up 358 billboards over the weekend from Wellsford to Bombay and even one on Aotea Great Barrier.
He says they seem to have been singled out for attack.
"My volunteers are going to be given rewards to identify who is doing this because it's just unacceptable conduct this early in the electoral cycle particularly if they are trolling me only, as opposed to (Mayor Phil) Goff or any other supported councillors of his. I don't think that's fair or right and so I will be putting a big shout out on my Facebook, on my website and the like," Mr Tamihere says.
As a person of colour he believes some of the defacing could have a racial motive.Copyright © 2019, UMA Broadcasting Ltd: www.waateanews.com
