“Last time was a protest, this time was a contest.”

Hadland’s vote trailed behind Pimm by more than 50 per cent. The significant difference in votes seemed to come as a surprise.

“I had a lot of support out there [but] you can never read the electorate,” he said. “Anyhow, we missed something, and we’ll analyze that and see what we can do next time.”

Whether or not that’s an indictor if Hadland will run in 2017, electorates will just have to wait and see.

“It will depend on family circumstances … [and] if there is some collective will to seek change, I would [run again].”

As for now, Hadland will continue to fight for northern issues at the regional district level as the Area C Director.

“That’s the way the cookie crumbles and you carry on with the rest of what’s in front of you.”
