Banks – Poll Continues Upward Trend
Auckland Mayor and Super City candidate John Banks says he’s happy to be ahead in the battle for the Greater Auckland Mayoralty but that he’s not taking this support for granted.
Results from a Curia Research poll conducted over five nights last week show Mayor Banks with a 5.1% lead over his opponents, when voters were asked which Aucklander they would most like to be Mayor.
“The results are encouraging and I am glad to be in front.
Mayor Banks also holds a slight lead of 1.4%, when voters were asked who they preferred in a head to head contest with the Mayor for Manukau.
“It is going to be a tough race but I think our message of aspiration and optimism is starting to get through.
“This race is going to go down to wire. No one has any privileged position; it is about a contest of ideas and the candidate with the best credentials to make the Super City work and at this stage much more work needs to be done.
“I will continue to be a cheerleader for all communities across a Greater Auckland.”
