The NZ Herald published my statement this week on what my vision for Auckland is and how I will achieve it (in 100 words!). The summarised my approach as that of a ‘team builder.’
I know what we need to do to get Auckland working better.
My six years as part of Auckland Council combined with more than 20 years leading and working with very large businesses gives me a strong sense of the challenges we face in Auckland but more importantly of the opportunities we have for more certain progress.
Using the council relationships I have developed, I will build a team committed to an Auckland that works.
This will mean moving investment early into our key transport priorities and fast-tracking development of more affordable housing, particularly in the significant areas that council controls.
