Auckland Local Election

Postby xsfat » Sat Sep 17, 2016 11:24 pm

Fellow Aucklanders, who are you voting for, and why?

Most mayoral candidates are lacklustre, inept, lacking in grammar, or just plain delusional about what can be achieved as a Mayor.

I'm considering voting Chloe Swarbrick for Mayor, simply because she's young, writes well, appears entrepreneurial, and interviews well.
The polls seem to show that she's coming fourth/fifth, not a bad effort at all. Anyone else worth considering or looking into?

What about the vote for the local ward, and the local board - does any one stand out to you?

I can't believe we still vote for the DHB board members, who as far as I can tell have no real decision making or even consultative authority...

In terms of Mayor, Phil Goff is tipped to win, since apparently no one else has any real 'name recognition'.
I can't see much difference in Phil Goff and Len Brown in their approach, so it looks like business as usual, except Phil Goff can be more dignified in public and in office...
I'm pretty sure even my folks would have voted for Phil Goff, that is until he said he would not rule out retaining Len Brown in the Council...

If you live in the Waitakere ward, the two candidates endorsed by the 'Living Wage' campaign are Penny Hulse and Greg Presland.
'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed
