Brown thinks Aucklanders just want Council to get on with work Newstalk ZB - 14/12/2013
He may have been officially cleared, but the Taxpayers' Union believes Len Brown still has questions to answer.An Ernst and Young review has revealed the Auckland Mayor failed to declare tens of thousands of dollars worth of complimentary hotel rooms and upgrades.It also shows ten percent of texts and calls on a cellphone the ratepayers funded, were to his mistress.Taxpayers Union spokesman Jordan Williams doesn't buy the idea the report puts the Mayor in the clear.
Len Brown is hoping Aucklanders will consider his conduct, including extensive personal use of a council cellphone, in context.The Mayor thinks he's done nothing wrong, and says the rules aren't clear.
Len Brown says an overhaul of the issues will make the rules more clear.
