Phil Goff fibbing on fuel tax
With the Long Term Plan submission process over, and the enabling legislation still before Parliament, Auckland Council is now required to re-do public consultation on the regional fuel tax before it can be introduced.
Mayor Phil Goff is claiming that a fuel tax is the only way for the Council to afford new transport infrastructure.
Don't be fooled
As shown in our "Fuel Tax Fact Check" the Council could afford all of its transport projects without a new tax if Mr Goff kept his pre-election promise to cut wasteful spending and find operational efficiencies of just 3-6 percent.
Will you take a moment to submit through our website on the new round of consultation?
