The Herald covers the announcement of Manukau Mayor Len Brown that he will stand for Mayor of the new Auckland Council.
Brown, a Labour Party member, is a strong candidate. It will be interesting if anyone else from the left stands.
I hope all candidates will propose specific policies, and cost them, so Aucklanders can know their likely rates level when they vote. Just like we require central Government politicians to reveal their tax policies before an election. That way people get an informed choice.
Brown has a campaign website. However as you see below, they didn’t fully populate it when they launched it.
