It’s important that elected members receive all the information they need before they vote and/or make a decision. Quality of reports presented to me in the past have caused me to take a stance on trying to improve this. This month I have taken on the role to chair the Quality Advice Political Advisory Group. The title is a mouthful, but the work of this group is important. Auckland's elected representatives need accurate information to help form their decisions and this group is tasked with making sure that the organisation is providing top quality advice. At present external ratings rank Auckland Council as 3rd in New Zealand for quality advice and I want to see this rise to being the best in NZ.
