Reasons for supporting him include: He is a native of Wellington, a business man of proven capacity; he can devote full time to the affairs of the city; he has had considerable experience on local bodies; he favours running the tramways on a business basis; he advocates municipal markets and the wiping out of Haining Street, the Chinese slum.
Of the five Wellington mayoral candidates in 1909, Bolton scored the fewest votes, with a total of 616. The winning candidate was Alfred Kingcome Newman with 4523 votes.
