Debating Auckland’s future

Debating Auckland’s future
Aucklanders will have the chance next month to measure up their mayoral candidates and hear where they stand on vital issues concerning the Supercity, during the Mayoral Debate to be held on 4 September at The University of Auckland.

Questions on topics such as housing affordability, future transport options and the proposed Auckland Unitary Plan will be directed to the current Mayor Len Brown as well as three other contenders for his job – John Minto, John Palino and the Reverend Uesifili Unasa.

Chaired by well-known journalist and political commentator Rod Oram, the Mayoral Debate, which is expected to be provocative and lively, is part of the Fast Forward lecture series at the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries at the University. Hosted by the School of Architecture and Planning the annual series includes lectures by internationally renowned architects, as well as sessions focussing on the Auckland Supercity.

The Mayoral Debate will allow the public to hear the leading mayoral candidates’ detailed views and vision for the future of Auckland. The mayoral hopefuls, who hold diverse views on many issues, will have to answer five questions each. With less than two months left until Election Day this is the perfect opportunity for voters to size up the contenders. The debate is free and open to the public.

Fisher and Paykel Appliances Auditorium, Level 0, Owen G Glenn Building, 12 Grafton Road, Auckland.
