Todd Niall from Radio NZ covered the last of the Auckland mayoral debates this week. I’ve done 67 debates.
Unusually, this one was much more narrowly focused than most on the issue of sport and recreation – the first time we had specifically addressed that issue.
The debate wasn’t just about a couple of us putting pressure on Goff and me reminding everyone they could still vote for me!
Aktive who organized it have done a useful summary of our key positions. Guess what? Goff thinks government needs to pay more and he wants to cut migration.
I actually spoke mainly about sport and recreation and how the comprehensive Strategic Action Plan hadn’t been progressed adequately because council’s focus has been too wide. And we need to make it easier for the private sector to contribute.
