Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Don’t Spend A Cent Until/If We Have To

The NBR has profiled my response to the Port Future Study Report released last week.

It mentions that I’m the only mayoral candidate who thinks moving the port is not a priority when Auckland is faced with billions of dollars of congestion and housing problems.

I make the point that actually researching a new location properly will itself cost millions of dollars and we shouldn’t consider that until the triggers the report refers to tell us we need to.

Of course this may not happen. because the report also says that it’s also possible that Auckland may not need to move the port.

You can read the story here if you have NBR pay-for-view.
