Council candidate list released

With nominations closing on Friday, Auckland Council has now formally released the list of candidates for next month's election. As our team lobbies and sign-ups candidates to the Ratepayer Protection Pledge, we will be updating this list.

The Ratepayer Protection pledge states:

“I [candidate’s name] pledge to all Aucklanders that I will not vote for any measures which increase the total average burden of rates, levies, and other compulsory Council charges, more than 2% per annum.”

Of you are a candidate and would like to complete the pledge, you can download it here.  To guarantee inclusion in our hard copy leaflets, please scan the completed pledge to enquiries@ratepayers.nz no later than 5pm Friday 20 August.
