Your local C&R team

C&R is a group of like-minded individuals who want to make a real difference in the lives of Aucklanders. We believe that success will not come from the tired old ways of doing things, but new thinking is needed – including a new relationship with central government. We believe Aucklanders deserve better and should demand more of their Council, and have both the team and the policies to put the “Super” back into the City.
