Tim Shadbolt catches attention as he ditches car for a push scooter

Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt tried his hardest to be noticed online during the recent election, but all he needed to do was ride a child's scooter to the 
shops.
 
The country's longest-serving Mayor was filmed riding the scooter in a suit on Wednesday, the clip shared widely on Facebook.
 
The video was taken after Mr Shadbolt had finished work for the day, making the "irregular", several kilometre trip to the shops with his son to buy some milk.
