Your friend and favourite losing candidate for the Waitematā Local Board, this site contains my ideas & campaign material from the 2016 campaign:
We have got to build.
Every day we have more new Aucklanders who need housing. I know we can provide it while protecting our heritage and public spaces.
New housing and population growth will put greater pressure on our infrastructure. I believe that supporting more modes of transport is the answer to that pressure not building more roads for cars.
We need to encourage walking and cycling, and fast & frequent public transport across the entire city. I support our existing initiatives including the CRL, Skypath, and the Parnell Rail Station, and I want to see more protected cycle lanes. I believe light rail will make a huge improvement to the utilisation of public transport around Auckland, and it will create greater access to the city.
I was born in Waitematā, and if I have my way, many years from now, I’ll die in Waitematā.
To be clear not everything I talk about is within the purview of local boards, but so what? We’re talking about running a city, it’s a long game by definition. We need voices at all levels of local and central government advocating for continuing improvement to the way our city works.
