City Vision collage resizeIntroducing City Vision’s candidates 

We are standing teams for the Waitematā, Albert- Eden and Puketāpapa Local Boards areas. Our candidates for the Puketāpapa Local Board stand as Roskill Community Voice. We also have a full team for the Auckland District Health Board (City Vision Health) and the Portage Licensing Trust.

Our candidates are grounded in the local community and will stand up for the things that matter to local people: transport choice & better, reliable public transport; affordable housing options; care for our environment and protection of our heritage; support for the arts and vibrant local events; keeping assets in public ownership; and, making Council work effectively through strong community engagement.
