Local body politics

Having lived in Akaroa for several years, Parker was elected mayor of Banks Peninsula District in 2001. He favoured amalgamation of the district with Christchurch City. Amalgamation took place on March 3, 2006, at which Parker became the sole Banks Peninsula representative on the Christchurch City Council.

In October 2007, Parker successfully stood in the local government elections, for the Christchurch mayoralty, after the retirement of Garry Moore, receiving just over 46,000 votes—well ahead of his nearest rival.
