Final #VoteAKL Results

Progressive Council remains


The final results for a rather poor turnout of an election (36%) are finally in.

Governing Body wise we have a progressive Council sitting on a 13-8 split or even 14-7 if Councillor Fletcher leans towards a more progressive angle than her tradition conservative one (crux will be the Rates issue).

Down in the south it is confirmed Sir John Walker and Daniel Newman will be representing Manurewa-Papakura while at Papakura Local Board we have a 3-3 split between the Papakura First Team and the Papakura Action Team.


Results as they stand:

I had secured about 30% of the vote in my first hit out. Okay sure not elected but I am still quite chuffed and thank the people for their votes.

I will still be around with Papakura keeping an eye on the issues. And in staying true to that I have three Local Government Official Information Act requests with Auckland Transport on transport issues with two more still be sent. Busy times ahead but for credit to Auckland Transport in their prompt replies including Twitter – yay.


I’ll post on the LGOIMA’s when AT has fully responded.
