EXCLUSIVE HAESE QUITS
Lord Mayor to walk at November election
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.
