Results are in... 850+ to Anderson

View of Cathedral Square, Christchurch, New Ze...Image via WikipediaAnother 850 votes from Christchurch City.

Not too bad given the media blackout on issues, no debate and the earthquake. Oh and a budget of less than 20 dollars. 

It should be noted that despite an increased turnout, the incumbent Mayor, Bob Parker was returned but his popularity is still tempered by >74% of Christchurch Citizens over 18yrs not voting for him.  Barely a mandate.

Retiring MP, Jim Anderton proved to be 'yesterdays man' with about 1 in 5 support.

(*still some specials etc to come in)
