Dunedin has new Green mayor - Shadbolt back for 9th term
To Dunedin now and the city has a new mayor, who stood under a green ticket. At just 35 years old, Aaron Hawkins is one of the country's youngest mayors. The two-term councillor has faced tough competition with 13 other candidates vying for the mayoralty after incumbent Dave Cull decided against running again, after three terms in office. Dunedin City Council will also have four new faces for the next three years. We speak to RNZ's Otago/Southland reporter Tess Brunton.
