Desley Simpson

Councillor for Ōrākei


Desley Simpson

I have a proven track record of delivering for Ōrākei.

Through teamwork and consensus-building, I have secured investment into our Ward including new sports grounds at College Rifles, Shore Rd Reserve and Colin Maiden Park, improved water quality, environmental initiatives and heritage projects and doubled the Ōrākei Local Board’s transport budget.

I have championed a new ‘value for money’ programme, which has produced efficiencies of $260 million in its first two years and ensured agenda papers now have financial implications, risks and mitigations.  I’m the only Councillor to put up 10 resolutions to tighten control over and improve accountability at Auckland Transport, also advocating so AT's unpopular plans were withdrawn from St Heliers and Mission Bay.

I listen to community feedback, was formerly Ōrākei Local Board chair and with your support, remain committed to delivering value for money for ratepayers.
