On Saturday, Christchurch city councillor and business owner John Mauger declared his candidacy for mayor. With this announcement, he hopes to run in the October 2022 local body election.
Mauger has lived in Christchurch for 16-19 years and is the proud parent of five children. According to public documents, he owns six properties.
He had been considering becoming mayor for some time, and it was Lianne Dalziel’s comment that finally convinced him to take the leap. He describes himself as being in the middle of politics with a lean towards the right, though he says he’s happy to vote with left-leaning People’s Choice on occasion. Most importantly, however, is wanting to be an advocate for Christchurch residents and represent their needs in government.
