Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

AUT Press Conference: Funding Growth

At the press conference I gave to the AUT media studies class this week, they asked about my rates and growth funding plan.

I want to give Aucklanders a zero percent rates increase option in my first budget, but also a 2% average or a 4% average growth option.

It’s the growth options I will argue for, but I think we have to demonstrate we can provide a savings dividend to get the credibility to ask for growth.

I outlined this in my Affordability and Growth plan.

Have a listen to what I said to the class here.
