Karl Tiefenbacher: Will continue to push for a better city despite By-election loss

A twist in the Wellington City Council by-election.

Green Party candidate and renting advocate Geordie Rogers has won the Pukehinau-Lambton ward seat.

Final results show he beat businessman Karl Tiefenbacher by just 45 votes.

Provisional votes had Tiefenbacher ahead, before specials were counted.

Geordie Rogers says it looked like votes weren't going his way initially, but he's glad people have given him a shot, and it's important he doesn't waste it.

Tiefenbacher told Nick Mills the result is disappointing, but won't stop his work advocating for a better city.
