Is Len Brown the New Aaron Gilmore?
Is Len Brown the New Aaron Gilmore? At Least Gilmore Paid the Bill
19 DECEMBER 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“If Len Brown won’t pay back the money ratepayers have been forced to fork out, councillors should explore legal channels to recover the money,” saysTaxpayers’ Union Executive Director Jordan Williams. “Even Aaron Gilmore paid the bill after being rude to the waiter.”
“Though there is no legal punishment for Brown’s breaches of the Council’s code of conduct, instead of being upfront, the Council needed an independent review of the Mayor’s behaviour to get to the truth. The Council should take all steps to recover the costs to ratepayers.”
“If Mr Brown wants to be responsible for all of Auckland, the least he can do is be responsible for his own behaviour.”
