He contested the 1929 Christchurch mayoralty but was beaten by the incumbent, Rev John Archer. He then contested the 1931 Christchurch mayoralty but was beaten by Dan Sullivan. For several years, he served as a member of Christchurch City Council. He died on 5 June 1943 and is buried at Linwood Cemetery.
