The Herald reports:
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff says putting any more ratepayers’ money into a $500,000 branding project is a “dead duck”.
Goff has told managers of the council’s promotion’s arm, Ateed, that if they want to proceed with the Global Auckland branding project they have to find money from the private sector.
“I’m not interested in spending any more ratepayers’ money in this area,” Goff said in an interview with the Weekend Herald.
It is early days but I am very impressed with Goff. He has twice nixed ATEED spending and also got rid of the Councillors on the Auckland Transport Board.
If he carries on like this, all power to him.
