Councillors call for no-confidence motion on Brown

A quarter of Auckland Councillors have today signalled they will attempt to put a motion of no-confidence regarding the Mayor of Auckland at tomorrow’s 10am Governing Body meeting at the Auckland Town Hall.

The motion they will put to be debated and voted on reads: “That the Governing Body notes that Len Brown lacks the essential leadership credentials of judgement, honesty, integrity, and credibility and as a result councillors have lost confidence in his ability to carry out his duties as Mayor of Auckland.”

The five councillors, Quax, Cooper, Brewer, Stewart and Krum have advised other councillors of their intentions and are confident more will come on board over the next 24 hours to support this stronger statement.
