I’m thrilled and humbled to announce that I have been elected as the Thames-Coromandel representative on the Waikato Regional Council.
Preliminary election day results give me a 283-vote majority over the second-placed candidate.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me. For those of you who voted for another candidate, rest assured I’ll be working in the interests of everyone in Thames-Coromandel.
My campaign focused almost entirely on the need for urgent strong action to address the climate crisis. I am especially pleased that the election result now gives me a solid mandate to pursue climate action for the region and Thames-Coromandel.
There are many other major challenges and opportunities for our region and district, and I relish the chance to tackle them.
My campaign also showed that you don’t have to throw large amounts of money into billboards, paid radio and newspaper advertising, and negative personal attacks to be successful. Sticking to the issues and using social media is a winning strategy.
Preliminary results :-
Denis Tegg 3311
Dal Minogue 3028
Clyde Graf 2971
Liam Kedzlie 2422
