Roskill Community Voice - for a strong community voice on the Puketapapa Local Board. Fighting for a fair share for Roskill.
Roskill Community Voice was established in 2010 as Auckland approached the first Supercity election.
Here in Mt Roskill there was a real feeling that our community had not received its fair share for many years, and that our voice was not being heard on important issues. Many local people feared that this could become even worse under the highly centralised Supercity structure.
In the 2010 election two Roskill Community Voice representatives, Julie Fairey and Michael Wood were elected. On the Board they have worked hard to give our community a voice. Key issues they have championed include: campaigning against more pokies and off-license liquor outlets in Roskill, for greater protection and recognition of our local heritage, for Roskill to receive a fair share of funding and resources, for a Living Wage, and for local community groups to have the funding and support they need to thrive and grow.
We are guided by progressive political values and work within the broader City Vision team to achieve our objectives, while retaining our local focus and identity. We want to see an Auckland in which local communities are empowered, public assets are retained, public transport is made a real priority, and our rating system is made fairer.
