Dick Hubbard seems determined to be the third one-term Mayor of Auckland in a row. He has written a column in favour of his plan to toll existing roads by saying Oliver Cromwell, Dick Turpin and Robin Hood all tolled roads also.
So Aucklanders your Mayor is basing his policies on those of a traitor, a robber and a mythical character.
Matt McCarten calls Hubbard’s plan “electoral suicide”.
I think this guarantees the ‘left’ in Auckland will now put up their own Mayoral candidate.Tags: Local Body Politics
