Geoff Simmons - A fair go for Mount Albert

The people of Mount Albert deserve a fair go. Lazy leadership from National has left them high and dry, leaving Labour and the Greens to chat amongst themselves in this by-election. It’s not on.

There is no such thing as a safe seat any more. The Opportunities Party thinks you deserve a real choice, and a real debate over the issues that are affecting you.

The issues in Mt Albert are the very same issues that are affecting the whole country. How do we grow a prosperous Auckland while still taking care of our people and our environment? It’s time to sort out:

  • spiraling house prices and rents
  • infrastructure creaking under the strain of rapid population growth
  • our degraded environment.

We’ve had decades of career politicians and their establishment parties sitting on their hands and now we’re all paying the price. The Opportunities Party wants to face up to the challenges ahead, and put in place real changes that will actually make a difference. As voters you need to be treated like adults and be part of the conversation.

It’s an election year. Let’s talk about the issues that matter to Mt Albert and to the country.

The issue of land banking

Land banking is a serious problem in Auckland, including the Mount Albert electorate and it's now pushing rent and house prices up across NZ. Why would you bother building a house and renting it when you can get such a good return from doing nothing? We need to stop land prices going through the roof and get developers building. TOP's tax reform policy will do exactly that.
