Michael Laws development manager of Christian School

Former Whanganui mayor and media personality Michael Laws is moving to Timaru for a new role at Craighead Diocesan School, and he is not ruling out a return to local government.

The new position as development manager for the school will entail him fundraising for the school’s new buildings, board of proprietors chairwoman Phillipa Guerin said.

“The role’s sole purpose is raising funds for future-proofing the school’s buildings,” Guerin said.

Laws made the decision to relocate to South Canterbury as a lifestyle change for his young family.

“I have lived my life in reverse.”

“I have had 26 to 27 years in public life, now it is time they [the children] came first in my role as a solo father,” Laws said.

“I’m devoted to my children.”

“That said, with all my local government and health board experience, I am happy to help if people want me to share that with them,” he said.
