An Australian-born lawyer, Ian Lawrence had been a member of Wellington City Council for 12 years before being elected mayor. Much of Lawrence's mayoralty was spent organising or attempting to organise major events for Wellington.
His work helped to shape the city's reputation as the cultural capital of New Zealand. Lawrence brought the Nissan Mobil car race to the city, and also helped to establish Wellington's International Festival of the Arts.
