Local Govts. have long been "crushed" by the central Govt. - Wayne Brown

Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown is keen to progress the implementation of his ten year budget. 

The ten year budget will go out for a month of consultation in February.  

Brown says central government has crushed local government for too long, and imposed consultation on them when they hardly do it themselves.   

He told Mike Hosking that there are also councillors standing in the way of proposals like his port operations lease, despite public support.  

Brown says there are councillors who have made a long career of saying no to everything.
