Jordan Williams: Ratepayers Alliance Spokesperson on Wayne Brown's response to the scrapped Auckland Fuel Tax

View descriptionShare

The Government and Auckland Council are not in agreement over the scrapping of the Regional Fuel Tax. 

It will be gone at the end of June, providing what the Government says is a cost-of-living relief.  

Auckland mayor Wayne Brown has come out swinging, saying the decision will leave a $1.2 billion shortfall in transport funding over the next four years. 

Ratepayers Alliance spokesperson Jordan Williams told Mike Hosking that last week, the mayor was saying Auckland Transport had lost the plot when it comes to value for money. 

He says this week it's a bit rich for Brown to complain we need to keep piling money into AT, which just has a long history of wasting it.
