For the past week or so we've been profiling the candidates vying to be the next mayor of Auckland, and this morning we hear from the man many see as the front runner to take the city's top job. Fa'anana Efeso Collins has consistently polled higher than his nearest rivals Wayne Brown, Viv Beck and Craig Lord, but with so many people still undecided the outcome is far from certain. Our producer Matthew Theunissen caught up with the Manukau-ward councillor for a coffee and a bite to eat at Mr Collins' local cafe in Otahuhu.
