One example is Mike Williams who was rejected by voters in standing for the Henderson-Massey Local Board, Waitemata DHB and the Waitakere Licensing Trust.
But Len has put him onto the Auckland Transport CCO.
Even worse, the appointments (done with no Council consultation – just a ratification vote) include two members of Len’s campaign team reports the Herald:
The mayor’s office has confirmed that two of the new appointees, Pacific Trust chief executive Richard Jeffery and Pacific business leader Pauline Winter, were members of Mr Brown’s election campaign team.
So of the 12 appointments Len made, four were of politicians rejected by the voters, two were of members of his campaign team, and one his controversial former CEO.
