EX­CLU­SIVE HAESE QUITS

The Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - ANDREW HOUGH

ADE­LAIDE’S Lord Mayor Martin Haese will not seek a sec­ond term as the elected head of the city’s most in­flu­en­tial coun­cil, elec­tri­fy­ing the Town Hall elec­tion bat­tle.

In a shock de­ci­sion, Mr Haese, 52, told The Ad­ver­tiser last night he was step­ping down from his $170,000-ayear role for “per­sonal and fam­ily rea­sons”.

De­spite hav­ing al­ready pub­licly re­vealed a sec­ond term bid to lead Ade­laide City Coun­cil, the for­mer busi­ness­man had “mixed emo­tions” when he yes­ter­day de­cided to walk away from pub­lic life.
