Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

TVNZ: Hundreds camp out in solidarity with Auckland’s homeless

The boys and I joined the “park up” last night in Mangere and slept in the car to show support for those homelessness in Auckland, and for me to discuss what I would do if elected Mayor.

Ahryn and Reuben briefly ‘starred’ on the TVNZ coverage of the night, but for me it was a great opportunity to meet and speak with a range of people, including council colleague from the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Josephine Bartley, about what more Auckland Council can do to help with a new mayor.

I outlined my general approach in a NZ Herald article here recently.
