At the recent mayoral debate I spoke about my plan to swap some of the assets Aucklanders have from one type of asset to another eg. half our airport shares for a transport or other critical asset.
I released this as part of my Affordability and Growth policy outline in March.
The $20M per year dividend loss would need to be made up in the reduced congestion cost or house price benefits.
I’m the only mayoral candidate who has a clear plan to fund some of our infrastructure deficit.
Aucklanders would have to support this via the annual plan process but I think it’s a debate worth having.
