Today's cronies

And the cronyism continues! Former National party President Judy Kirk has been appointed as director of the MetService. Failed National Rimutaka candidate Alistair Scott has been appointed to the board of TransPower.

I don't have the time to do this, but the advice on these appointments is subject to the OIA, and can be requested. It would be interesting to see whether the full appointment process was complied with and who else, if anyone, was considered.
