There has been a bit of media attention of how C&R fared in Auckland – with them only getting 5/20 seats. And it is true they did fall short of their goals.
But there hasn’t been a lot of focus on how two other tickets fared – Labour and City Vision (which is Labour/Green basically).
Now C&R managed the following:
- 5 Councillors
- 32 Board members
- 3 Licensing Trust members
- 6 DHB members
So 46 reps elected.
City Vision only got a total of 12 candidates elected, and Labour got 14, six of whom are merely licensing trust reps.
So while not the result that C&R would have wanted, neither was it as bad as some media have made out.Tags: Auckland Council, C&R, City Vision, Labour
