Aaron Bhatnagar is an Auckland City Councillor representing Hobson Ward. He is Chairman of the City Development Committee at Auckland City, and a member of the Citizens & Ratepayers majority bloc on council.
Aaron Bhatnagar was caught doctoring the online encyclopedia Wikipedia to paint his opponents in a bad light during the 2007 local body elections.
Using the alias of Barzini _ a power-hungry psychopath from Mario Puzo's novel The Godfather _ Mr Bhatnagar created entries for his Action Hobson opponents in the Hobson ward and made unflattering changes to the entry for Mayor Dick Hubbard.
After winning a council seat and watching Action Hobson councillors Christine Caughey and Richard Simpson go down to a C&R rout in Hobson, Mr Bhatnagar tried to remove the Wikipedia entries for his opponents at 3am the following morning. New Zealand Herald 10/9/2008
In June 2009 Aaron Bhatnager chaired the City Development Committee that voted to disqualify Clean Stream from the Waste Tender for Waiheke Island ending a 13 year contribution to Waiheke waste reduction.
The contract was subsequently awarded to TPI. The decision is currently before the Auckland Transition Agency.
