SUMMARY Leggett has again topped the charts, with his ratings in the five categories being assessed in the 80s. He finished well ahead of secondranked Izzy Ford. The panel described him as the face of the council and a leader for Porirua. ‘‘He’s brilliant and he listens,’’ said one panelist. ‘‘People will knock him because he’s at the front, but he has the best interests of Porirua at heart,’’ said another. The only criticism he faced was of his desire for a super-city potentially distracting him from his civic duties.

Her big presence on social media gave an insight into her ‘‘being a real person’’, said one panelist. She has a solid focus on her own community and Porirua in general and was finding her voice around the council table. One panelist thought she was ‘‘on Nick’s coat-tails a bit’’, but made her presence felt strongly on issues she believed in.
