Angus to stand for QLDC Mayor

Jul 06, 2022

From Al Angus:

I'll be standing for the Mayoralty of QLDC this year. 
I've been in the Wakatipu 50 years and I believe the last six years has been the worst council we have ever suffered through.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome. We cannot have more of the same. 

I'm here to change things to community focused, if you've got the will, I'm your man.


  • Use every tool and mechanism available to retain total control of our water infrastructure and completely reverse this council's support for the three waters theft.

  • A comprehensive and transparent investigation into the Lakeview sale, who benefited either directly or indirectly.

  • Investigate how the council was driven to sign the illegal lease of Wanaka airport. 

  • Suspend all consultancy contracts, assess them for value, and again see who is financially benefiting, either directly or indirectly. It certainly doesn't appear to be the ratepayers
  • Identify and lock in for future generations the immense environmental recovery that has been an accidental upside of covid

    What sets Al apart is that he is HONEST and fights for the people not the players. Good luck Al. Hopefully Al will get the opportunity to make a difference for ALL of us.
