Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

RNZ: You can’t pick and choose who you work with in local government

The three leading Auckland mayoral candidates attended another debate last night. Todd Niall from RNZ reported it.

There was a bit of focus on our political background/alliances. I’m the only candidate with experience working across the different local government groups and independents in Auckland.

I said the Mayor of Auckland has to work with all Councillors, not just one group. I get on with all the current councillors and am discussing my policies with them and new candidates. You can’t pick and choose who you work with in local government.

We discussed a range of other serious issues including who had the most realistic transport plan and is making credible financial promises, but the three of us at least agreed not to take ourselves too seriously.
