Leo Molloy for Mayor

Secure Auckland's Future

Why I'm running

After a tough two years, Auckland has been left a broken city. Whether it’s housing, crime or congestion, the Council’s policies have failed. Our beautiful city is in desperate need of strong, independent leadership to get it back on track.

Many of us feel frustrated that for far too long our elected officials have failed to deliver on promises. Career politicians are all mouth, no trousers. They’ve been asleep at the wheel for far too long and as a result hard-working Aucklanders are suffering.

Auckland can do better - that’s why I’m running. We are at a critical juncture in our recovery. I believe that Auckland’s best days lie ahead of us, not behind us. I am relentlessly Auckland and won’t stop fighting to help our city reach its full potential.

What I stand for

I was born in a small town on the West Coast to an Irish-Catholic family. My father passed away when I was 11, leaving my darling mother to raise me and my six siblings on her own. She taught me the values of hard work and responsibility, the two pillars I live my life by.

I’m a father who has had past lives as a jockey, veterinarian, and businessman. But now I’m counting on your support to lead Auckland. My real-world experience is what separates me from my opponents, all of whom are career politicians.

People know that I’m not afraid to speak truth to power, fight for good, and stand up for injustices in our society. These are traits I’ll take with me into the Council – I’ll never stop being a champion for the people of Auckland.
