 Four councillors have decided not to stand again, for unknown reasons.

Councillor Dave Macpherson making the following statement in the media is unacceptable to Hamilton residents: "Macpherson said the four vacancies would see 'every man and his dog' stand, and said [Ray] Stark's campaign and the possible candidacy of former ACT president Garry Mallett could yet persuade him to stand again."

Sorry, Mr Macpherson - there are no dogs with two legs in Hamilton. It may be in the district where you live. I suggest you withdraw this statement and make a public apology, or at the October local body election only dogs with four legs will vote for you.
