The first major Auckland mayoral debate was held this morning between the three leading candidates.
The NZ Herald video does a great job of contrasting Phil Goff and me.
Goff promises to complain louder and harder about what he thinks the government hasn’t done for Auckland.
I am committing to sorting Auckland Council out and taking more responsibility for the transport and housing levers we control.
The article also reports that “Mr Goff and Ms Crone want the port moved but Mr Thomas said housing and transport were more pressing. ”
That’s what Aucklanders are telling me.
You can have a look at further video from this morning here, where I challenge Goff about his history.
