The order in which Councillor and Mayoral candidates will appear on the ballot sheet was determined yesterday, with John Groenendijk drawing last spot on both.

Councillor Groenendijk - who drew top spot for the Mayoral ballot in the 2009 election - said he did not think being last would hinder his chances.
