Do costs outweigh benefits?
SANDEE Martindale (QT August 5) laments the lack of information flowing to her letterbox from mayoral candidates.
I know one potential candidate who said he would need $100,000 to run a proper campaign, thus he did not nominate as he said he had no chance of raising that amount.
I do not know if that is realistic, but it is an interesting insight.
Is being mayor worth that much?
