Phil Goff criticises Auckland ‘presidential’ leadership | Stuff.co.nz
Auckland mayoral prospect Phil Goff says he would run the city differently from the current “presidential” style of leadership.
In a local television interview the Mt Roskill Labour MP has reiterated that he’s seriously considering standing for mayor, but claims he still hasn’t made the final decision.
Translation: I’m definitely running
“If I ran for mayor, that’s the reason I’d run as an independent.
“I think a mayor needs not to be partisan, but to be inclusive to look after the whole of the city and to try and work with the whole of the council.
