Why You Would Seek His Help?
Greg is standing up against the Mayor and the Council bureaucrats to get Rodney a “fair go”.
He believes Auckland Council has lost track of the important issues facing Rodney.
He has proven himself as a strong leader and is unafraid to get “stuck into them”.
Poor financial management and wasteful overspending have pushed up rates and increased debt and the wage bill, while service levels have fallen right across Auckland.
Rodney’s rates are being used to fund massive central Auckland projects that provide little or no benefit to the people of Rodney.
At the same time vital roading, rail and bus service projects important to Rodney’s residents have been neglected.
He believes Auckland Council has to live within its means if it is to provide reliable and fair services to all Aucklanders, including Rodney.
