2018 Tauranga By-Election
The following information was provided by John Robson for the 2018 Tauranga By-Election.
If I am elected, all salary for the rest of the term will be placed in a trust
Next election, if re-elected, the trust will pay me all the accumulated salary
If I am not re-elected - then the trust will pay a percentage of its funds to the city - depending on my share of the vote.
For example, if I only get half the votes I need to get re-elected, then the trust will pay half its funds to the city
If no-one votes for me, the city gets everything.
Last election, this guarantee cost me $58,000 - and, I'm happy to make the same promise again.
