Len’s Days Are Numbered

Affordable Auckland Leader Stephen Berry has begun a full time two week campaign to promote the Len Brown Stand Down March and is heartily encouraged by the feedback he is receiving from the residents and ratepayers of Auckland. “Will Ryan and I have been hitting the pavements of Auckland and I attended Sunday’s Big Gay Out. The feedback we have received has been overwhelmingly supportive in favour of Len Brown’s resignation.”

Mr. Berry pressed the flesh with attendees of the Big Gay out today and experienced first-hand the groundswell of opposition to Len Brown’s mayoralty. “I would certainly not be exaggerating when I tell you that 75% of the people I spoke to are right behind our campaign to unseat Len Brown as Mayor of Auckland. If my experiences are anything to go by, Len’s mandate is well and truly gone. He may have a thick skin, but the voters of Auckland are wielding one hell of a jackhammer..”

The reasons why Aucklanders are so supportive of Brown’s resignation are varied, but that doesn’t dilute their enthusiasm for his removal and participation in the Len Brown Stand Down March. “ I’ve said all along that I don’t care what people’s personal political views are, as long as they come along on February 22nd to make them known. Whether left-wing or right-wing, the majority of Aucklanders clearly want Len to hand in his resignation.”

“Most people I have spoken to really don’t care about his affair and neither do I. However they do agree that having sex in the workplace is wrong, receiving undeclared gifts is wrong and annual increases in rates, spending and borrowing are disastrous for Aucklanders.

The Len Brown Stand Down march will be held on Saturday February 22 at 12 noon. It will start at QE2 Square in Britomart, finishing at Airedale Street via Queen Street. The Len Brown Stand Down – Protest March Facebook
