Although at the time of writing the KCDC has still not advised voting numbers with each contest (a totally unacceptable delay), the GWRC yesterday provided the result of the Kapiti seat on the council:

GAYLOR Penny 10,194
MACKAY Neil 6,593

Having endorsed Neil MacKay, this result is a disappointment for us, but Neil agrees he left his campaign far too late.  Nevetheless, his tally is more than respectable for someone hitherto largely unknown.

We’ve encouraged Neil to express views with media releases about what happens with GWRC matters as they affect Kapiti over the next three years.
