Things are starting to warm up ahead of the the local body elections in October, with Nobby Clark, the spokesperson for the Invercargill Ratepayers Advocacy group, throwing his hat into the ring to be elected to Council.
Kari Graber is the other outside to declare an interest in standing so far.
Current mayor Sir Tim Shadbolt has confirmed his candidacy again, seeking to extend his record as the longest serving mayor in the country.
Current deputy mayor Rebecca Amundsen has also announced her intention to stand for the mayoralty, an announcement that has already caused a little friction with mayor Tim.
In 2016 Sir Tim won the mayoralty by some 5500 votes, although his winning tally did drop compared to previous elections.
There were three new councilors elected at the last vote.
