Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

NBR: Thomas and Goff head-to-head

Phil Goff and I appeared before the Trans Tasman Business Circle this week. I announced I would lead a merge of council’s events and tourims business (ATEED) with the facilities business (RFA) to get some savings and more efficiency. Phil announced he favoured selling a golf course.

Although, as the NBR said, he got his valuation numbers wrong – he also doesn’t understand that he will first need to bust a long-term lease that council has signed with the golf club. Cost? He has no idea. Much like this light rail plan, this looks like another ill considered, unfunded idea.
