Wellington By-Election Candidate Thomas Morgan
By-Election Candidate Thomas Morgan. Southern Ward, Wellington
‘Thomas Morgan is delighted to have been nominated for the Southern Ward by-election caused by the appointment of previous Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle as a Member of Parliament for the area. Paul has wished Thomas all the very best with the campaign.
While essentially throwing his hat in the ring Thomas is reminded that branding is one thing while selecting the best candidate is another and Thomas urges the community to fully assess all the candidates for their strengths, abilities and recent achievements especially looking at the full skill-set being provided for their up-coming work as a city councillor.
‘I’d like to think that I have a comprehensive skill-set and capacity to be an effective councillor in a city that is the jewel in the crown of New Zealand’s major metropolitan areas. I’ve spent decades effectively preparing a vast skill-set for the role and it is an open offer if the community wish to make the most it’ he said.
Thomas acknowledges that the Southern Ward is a Labour Party stronghold however Thomas says that it is an open election and a chance for the community to select the best possible candidate and not the one selected by anyone else. With a varied educational and career background in media, law, retailing, politics, business management, communication and pro-bono consulting Thomas has a very wide pallet to draw on considering he also wrote this press release himself- he has a wry sense of humour.
Voting opens on November 30 and closes on December 22 and Thomas is hoping for a rather pleasant and surprizing Christmas present!
