One mayor, elected by residents and ratepayers of the Auckland region.


The mayor of Auckland will be elected by the people of Auckland at the local elections in 2010.

The elected mayor of Auckland will preside over the council and have additional powers to other New Zealand mayors, including the power to:

  • appoint the deputy mayor
  • appoint committee chairs
  • propose the budget and strategic direction
  • establish and maintain a mayoral office.

The mayor will have a vision for Auckland and be expected to chart and lead an agenda for the region.

With one council working for the benefit of the whole Auckland region, the mayor will be able to implement Auckland-wide initiatives and policies that ensure New Zealand’s largest city thrives.
