Mt Roskill is held by Phil Goff, currently running for the Auckland mayoralty.
Wood is understood to be planning a formal announcement on April 16 to throw his hat in the ring for the Labour nomination.
This is no surprise. Wood has been the under study for Labour for the seat for many years. His Facebook photo is of himself and Phil Goff.
His CV is ideal to win Labour selection. President of Young Labour, a union official, an Auckland local board member and an NGO.
