National's Christopher Luxon confirmed as Botany MP

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, former Air NZ chief executive Christopher Luxon will represent the Botany electorate in Parliament for the next three years. Luxon won the seat for the National Party after Jami-Lee Ross, the previous MP for the seat, quit the party after a messy, public falling out with former party leader Simon Bridges.
The electorate in east Auckland extends from Cockle Bay and Shelly Park in the north to Clover Park and East Tāmaki in the south.

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
