Vic Crone has resigned her role as Xero’s managing director, NZ and new markets, to focus on her tilt at the Auckland mayoralty, promising she will bring fresh thinking and a focus on fiscal responsibility should she win next year’s election.
Victoria is giving up her job to campaign fulltime for the Mayoralty. A real contrast to Phil Goff who will be remaining in his taxpayer funded job for the next ten months.
Although she says she will run as an independent and would be happy to work with National and Labour if her bid is successful, she notes that she believes “strongly in the values of fiscal responsibility and share this view with others on the centre right.
It’s going to be simple for Aucklanders. If you want affordable rates then vote for a centre-right Mayor and centre-right Councillors who are committed to a cap on rates increases.
As well as her mayoralty campaign, Ms Crone also announced the launch of a website to support it: http://vic4mayor.nz/
