Auckland Council Candidate Responses 4

I am impressed that the responses to my questionnaire to date have, in some cases been substantive, and some ratepayers have commented to me that whether or not they agree with all that has been said in those responses, they appreciate the fact that some candidates have made an effort. I will continue to publish further responses as they come to hand. It is interesting to note at this stage that not one incumbent Councillor has responded.
