The once hard working and high profile leader of the EMA fell from grace in 2011. It appears he’s committed to public service and is looking to be elected to a district health board.
His blog at fairpoint.co.nz promotes him and even has a post on researching the gender pay gap – you have to admire his spirit in tackling that issue head on! Oh, and he has a book coming out.
What astounds me, though, is that he has been suckered by the claims that comment spam is good link building and a good way to promote himself. I can’t even begin to imagine how the sales pitch went, but the post the comment was left on was written in 2008. The IP address that the comment was left from is clearly not his – it relates back to Sri Lanka.
So, if he’s so gullible as to believe that spamming his site around NZ blogs is good practice can he be trusted as a candidate?
And should we be checking all the candidates for similarly naive business decisions?
