Goff makes environment central plank of re-election campaign

From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 19 August 2019

Auckland's Mayor Phil Goff is campaigning on improving the region's natural environment and tackling climate change but admits he's going to need a lot of support from central government to do this.

His official campaign launch yesterday was attended by numerous Labour Party ministers, whose backing he needs if he's to push through plans like the electrification of the city's diesel bus fleet. RNZ's Matthew Theunissen was there.
