The Mayor chats to Rachel this week about a couple of hot topics, talking Bird of the Year (and other native bird related issues), housing in Auckland, and some of the latest happenings with the Tupuna Maunga authorities.
His Worship is back to his usual business, including the weekly chat with bFM Breakfast. Talking cycling infrastructure and safety, council-controlled services, and learning how to recycle properly as part of Recycling Week 2019. Good stuff.
As the local election votes were revealed over the weekend, we return to our weekly chat with our new (returning) Mayor, Phil Goff. Talking goals for this next term as Mayor, youth councillors and his newborn grandson (aww).
The Mayor dials in all the way from beautiful Bethells Beach to chat with Rachel about what's going on in Tāmaki this morning. We're talking the councils PR spending, what's happening with North Te Papa, and how on earth we're going to get through the housing crisis.
His Worship is busy with the upcoming local elections, but takes the time to remind us how to cast a special vote and the importance of having your say. And with the weather getting better, swim season is fast approaching so the Mayor chats to Rachel about the quality of our waters and how to stay safe.
