Singing the praises of new council By SCOTT MORGAN Settling in: Supercity mayor Len Brown and councillors at the Auckland Council inauguration. Photo: LAWRENCE SMITH Supermayor Len Brown s tendency to break into song seems contagious, with sev- eral newly elected councillors emulating their leader at the first Auckland Council meet- ing. Albert-Eden-Roskill coun- cillor Cathy Casey started the trend during her maiden speech on Tuesday, during the second part of the meet- ing which began with the mayor and councillors inaug- uration on Monday evening. We have a singing mayor --IhopeIwillbegiventhe chance to do a wee bit of sing- ing as well, she said. The City Vision councillor then sang a number she com- posed herself that talked about the injustice of spend- ing millions of dollars on the Rugby World Cup when there s likely to be no benefit from the tournament for Auckland s poorest citizens. But two right-leaning Citizens & Ratepayers coun- cillors weren t going to be out- done. Whau councillor Noelene Raffills gave a rendition of How Great Thou Art, while North Shore s George Wood belted out a slightly modified version of Steve Goodman s City of New Orleans. But Maungakiekie-Tamaki councillor Richard Northey refrained from singing in his maiden speech. He told the meeting it was a great honour to be representing the suburbs of Onehunga, Oranga, Mt Wellington and Glen Innes for another term. It s an incredibly diverse ward that I have to try and represent here. I m aware many of my con- stituents are struggling, he said. Mr Northey says the new council needs to work with central government to develop policies that will help poorer families improve their situation. Citizens & Ratepayers co- leader Christine Fletcher also recognised the the diversity of her Albert-Eden-Roskill ward. Mrs Fletcher called for more acceptance than was seen during an influx of new migrants into her Eden elec- torate when she was MP for the area in the 1990s. Waitemata and Gulf coun- cillor Mike Lee says the supercity structure could maximise the potential of the Auckland region. There s two tiers -- one to deal with larger, more regional issues and local boards to return the local to local government. Cameron Brewer, who rep- resents the Orakei ward, says he wants to see real progress on a second harbour crossing made this term. We need to get on and build the infrastructure required without taxing rate- payers out of the city.
