Power and Influence in the Governance of Auckland
 
 
Why should we have listened to Colin Knox? What qualifies him to speak on matters of Auckland’s governance?
 
Here’s why……
 
Colin has a BSc, BA, MA (Hons) from Victoria University, PhD, Massey University, Master of Public Administration Harvard, was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship, and a Harkness Fellowship. Colin had a distinguished career in the public and corporate spheres, culminating in being CEO of the ARA, later     formally known as Auckland Regional Council. Colin oversaw the establishment of “Local Authority Trading Enterprises” to manage public utilities in Auckland, including  water, sewage, refuse and transport (in the form of the Yellow Bus Company). So, yes, he is qualified to speak on the subject of Auckland’s governance.
 
We expected the content of Colin’s address to be about the loss of democracy in Auckland local governance. However, by his own admission, through recent research, he has been objectively impressed with what he has learnt to be the case.
