Mayor in the Chair in Royal Oak

Mayor in the Chair in Royal Oak

Len Brown will set up his chairs to have a chat to Royal Oak locals on Friday 15 February for one of his Mayor in the Chair sessions.

Mayor in the Chair sessions are regular, one-hour lunchtime events held in different areas around Auckland, when locals can pull up a chair and have a brief one-to-one chat with the Mayor about any topic they wish.

Len Brown has held the events from Wellsford to Waiuku, Huia to Beachlands and dozens of points in between since becoming Mayor of Auckland, and most recently in Clendon.

“I’ve set out my chairs in libraries, shopping malls, town squares, main streets and even a community garden for these events. They are great opportunities for me to hear from everyday Aucklanders about their experience of living, working, travelling and playing in Auckland.”

“These sessions are a microcosm of democracy in action, a chance for me to listen to different points of view, to offer clarity and explanation about council decisions and activities, and sometimes just have a good old feisty debate.”

Len Brown will be outside the Royal Oak PostShop, 794 Manukau Road from 12 noon to 1pm on Friday 15 February.
