RAM stands in council elections
RAM (Residents Action Movement) is standing in the council elections across Greater Auckland. Election campaigning officially kicks off on 13 August.
In the 2004 election for the Auckland Regional Council, the RAM team won a massive 87,000 votes. We got one RAM councillor (Robyn Hughes) elected onto the regional council, and narrowly missed out with several other RAM candidates. It is widely believed that the RAM vote will increase in this year’s election.
RAM is fielding a united team of strong candidates all committed to:
Cut council rates for homeowners.
Defend our communities from racist attacks.
Free & frequent public transport.
Save our park on the Manukau Harbour.
Plus other RAM policies to support grassroots people.
