City Vision ARC Team

MEDIA RELEASE

City Vision Arc Team

City Vision today announced its team for the Regional Council in the Auckland constituency.

ARC Members Jack Henderson and Mike Lee are standing for re-election, and are joined by Jill Amos and John Hill.

City Vision is a local team endorsed by Labour, the Alliance, and community independents, campaigning to “Keep Auckland Ours”

City Vision believes that effective regional government is important if the problems of urban sprawl, transport and environmental degradation are to be surmounted in a clean, prosperous region of the future.

An environmentalist and former Chairman of the ARC Parks committee 1992-95
Mike Lee has been very much a back-bencher since his return to the C & R
dominated ARC in 1998. Mike led the opposition to the Auckland Councils'
plans to spend $112m on leasing Auckland’s rail corridors from Tranz Rail.

Jack Henderson, a first-term Councillor and Labour Party member, has worked to improve Auckland’s environmental management and public transport and limit sprawl. A former Director of Friends of the Earth NZ, he works in communications and computing, has two children and was involved with Playcentre for seven years.

Jill Amos, a Labour life member, has worked in education for fifty years. She is a former Member of the ARA and Manukau City Council, the New Zealand Board of Health, and the Auckland Hospital Board. She was a foundation member of the New Zealand AIDS foundation.

John Hill, is an architect with local body experience and a keen interest in Auckland regional growth issues-containment of sprawl, better transport systems, and quality
urban design. Chair of the Auckland Central Alliance, he is a director of Housing NZ Corporation, and is a member of the Building Industry Authority.

Gordon Campbell: On Whether Spotify Can Save Itself; Plus A Playlist


Spotify has to be one of the most interestingly futile mouse-wheels of 21st century capitalism. Run, run, run goes the Spotify mouse but it never, ever makes a profit. For reasons set out below, it maybe never will. But it won’t be for wont of trying. Reportedly, Spotify’s music library contains 70 million tracks and it adds 60,000 more each day. By some estimates it adds on average, one new track every 1.4 seconds. (No wonder it's so hard to keep up with new music.) Spotify has 345 million active users, and 155 million of them have been willing to pay a subscription in order to enjoy their music ad-free. Ads are not a major driver of company revenue...
