Question to the Super City Candidates re: multi-million dollar Cloud Tent at Party Central
I hosted the AUSA Super City Candidates debate at Auckland Uni today. Andrew Williams and John Banks refused to show (no show = no vote), so I asked the Candidates (Simon Prast, Penny Bright, Annalucia Vernhunt, Colin Craig and Len Brown) the following question that perhaps the mainstream media would like to pick up:
"Why are millions (up to tens of millions) being secretly earmarked to be spent on a 'Cloud Tent' temporary structure at the 'Party Central' water front location and why is 'Cloud Tent' decision being announced after the election?"
This was the first time any of the candidates claimed they had heard about this and all denounced it.
