Lianne Dalziel has revealed why it's taken her so long to announce her intention to run in next year's mayoralty election.
Earlier this year her husband Rob Davidson was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Lianne Dalziel told Chris Lynch that's behind her reticence in terms of speaking about things.
She says it was also a question of priorities and they are confident they have many years ahead of them.
Dalziel says Rob's responded well to treatment and is backing her 100 percent.
