Mayor’s inaction upsets local MP
Tamaki Makaurau MP Peeni Henare is slating Auckland mayor Len Brown over his lack of action on the Ports of Auckland wharf extensions.
Mr Henare says the port company cancelled a briefing for Labour’s Auckland MPs on the issue, which is indicative of the high handed attitude of management and senior decision-makers.
He says mana whenua and the wider public are opposed to the work because of its effect on the harbour, but the council-owned company refuses to listen.
"I’m concerned the mayor is I won’t say washing his hands, he is almost turning a blind eye to what is going on when we need him at this time to stand up for the people who are clearly against this going ahead," Mr Henare says.
