It’s been quite a ride this year.


I’d like to thank the thousands of Aucklanders I’ve met, debated/argued with and tried to help. Thank you for your warmth, good humour and the occasional whack around the back of the head :)

Running for mayor of Auckland is almost as much a privilege as the job itself.

From Waiuku to Te Hana, from Piha to Great BarrierĀ and everywhere in between – it’s been a rich experience.


te-hanaAuckland has its challenges, but if we could bottle the spirit and determination of our many different peoples we’d beat all of them.
