More cronyism

Today's cronyism: Chris Finlayson has appointed property consultant Grant Kerr to the new Arts Council. He has some arts background, having been "co-founder and chairperson of the Taranaki Arts Festival Trust". But he's also National MP Maggie Barry's partner. Which makes the appointment rather unseemly.

I am unable to confirm whether the Wayne Marriott appointed is the former Young Nats president and failed Aoraki candidate.

Update: It appears that its a different Wayne Marriot. So, only one crony today then.
