Dick Frizzell casts his vote with paint

When campaigning for Councillor, why settle for having your photo plastered all over billboards when you can instead have your portrait painted on a billboard, by none other than iconic Kiwi artist Dick Frizzell? At least you’ll get a vote in the creativity stakes. As part of Alex Swney's campaign to run as Councillor for the Waitemata/Gulf Ward, Frizzell painted Swney's likeness onto this board at Ponsonby's Western Park.
