It gets worse – another property developer is rattling the tin for Porirua carpetbagger Nick Leggett for Wellington’s mayoralty. Chris Gollins has been asking for donations, with donors having to submit email addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gollins has form – the Real Estate Institute found him guilty of disgraceful conduct in backdating a sales agreement.
The tribunal said Gollins tried to deceive Price or Foodstuffs to obtain his commission. Attempting to pass off an agreement signed two years after the event would be considered by members of the public and agents of good standing as disgraceful conduct. The tribunal also found him guilty of unsatisfactory conduct. Commenting on the decision, Gollin said “What I did was dumb, not dodgy.”
Disgraceful was the word the Real Estate Institute used.
It seems Andrew Little might have been right to warn Stuart Nash MP off association with Leggett’s campaign. In my opinion, Wellington ratepayers should also be wary of carpetbagger Nick and his property developer backers.
