Local Govt voters choose green transport
New Zealanders cast a clear vote for better buses, trains, walking and cycling in the local body elections, said the Green Party today.
“The decisive victory of Len Brown in Auckland, and close result in Wellington where Celia Wade-Brown is neck-in-neck with the incumbent mayor, demonstrate that New Zealanders want more transport options,” said Green Party Co-leader Russel Norman.
Len Brown was elected mayor of the new Auckland super city by a wide margin, on a platform of a much expanded public transport network, especially rail.
