Mike and His Worship talk about those who fought for New Zealand and remembering their legacy. Despite being the Mayor of Auckland, we're also here to talk about the wider matters for New Zealanders. We'll talk more about Tāmaki Makaurau next week, promise.
His Worship is talking big plans for Auckland city, as well as his throne, and those heavy, oh so sacred, chains. Covering the costs of Eden Park, new plans for the viaduct and Kauri dieback, are we actually doing enough Phil?
His Worship talks the latest form of transport around Tāmaki Makaurau, electric scooters... Easy commute or rogue hazard? The Mayor isn't convinced. Phil also catches up with Mike about special visitors to New Zealand and, of course, Guyfawkes.
His Worship talks to Tess about the future of Auckland city's waterfront, can we expect a brand new shiny stadium? And what about smokefree 2025, how's that looking? And wow, all these electric bikes everywhere! Is _this_ the future?
Phil and Mike catch up over all sorts this week, including how the Mayor is looking forward to getting his motorbike out with these warmer months coming. Also covering the cost of wages, homeless count, and, oh yeah, the St. James, what is happening with that Phil?
Those cherry blossoms are the absolute highlight of Mikey's weekend and he can't wait to tell His Worship about it all. Squeezing that in with all the other issues Mike wants to cover this morning, including PWC, ACC, the Aotea center, and some big cranes.
His Worship and Mike catch up after two _long_ weeks apart, covering more money for infrastructure (yay!) and less money for salary costs (yay?), more red light cameras, and potentially extending Queens Wharf.
It's been a busy week for His Worship, yikes! From the 1080 drop, to a big ol' loan from the government for the housing, the fuel tax (because we've never talked about that before, right?) and public transport. Another Tuesday with the Mayor and Tess, nice.
