    Simon Wilson: The big job facing new Auckland mayor Wayne Brown

    Simon Wilson: The big job facing new Auckland mayor Wayne Brown

    Auckland has a new mayor

    Businessman and former Far North Mayor Wayne Brown has steamed ahead of efeso collins for the chains, leading by around 54-thousand votes.

    Just over 24 hours after the results came in, and he’s already making waves – the Chair of Auckland Transport has resigned, to give him a “clear runway”.

    Brown has previously said he would replace all the directors of Council-Controlled Organisations, including Auckland Transport.

    He’s also outlined his pledge to Auckland in today’s Herald on Sunday – to fix what he calls a “broken” Auckland, starting with those CCOs, dealing with the question about the port, and tomorrow getting a briefing on the super city’s finances.

    NZ Herald Senior Writer SImon Wilson joined Tim Roxborogh and Roman Travers to dissect the issues facing Auckland’s new mayor.
