Prospective candidates who did not stand

Debates

A debate held on 15 February was attended by Goff, Crone, Bright, Thomas, Berry and Hay.[31] Goff promoted the public-private partnership construction of a light rail network in Auckland, while Berry described the idea as fiscally irresponsible and out of date.[32] Maria Slade of Stuff.co.nz opined the debate outcome as a victory for Goff.[33]

Goff, Crone and Thomas participated in a 17 June debate,[34] in which traffic congestion was discussed, and Goff lamented the late commitment to the City Rail Link as an example of poor investment in public infrastructure.[35] A debate was scheduled for 8 September at the University of Auckland's School of Architecture and Planning, to be chaired by journalist Rod Oram.[36]
