Mayor bows out

Auckland City Harbour News - - FRONT PAGE -

The man in red will be mak­ing his 80th ap­pear­ance at this year’s Farm­ers Santa Pa­rade but one reg­u­lar face you won’t see be­longs to mayor Len Brown.

Deputy mayor Penny Hulse will be there in in his place, pa­rade gen­eral man­ager Pam Glaser says.

Mr Brown says he has made com­mit­ments with his fam­ily be­fore Christ­mas in or­der to spend more time to­gether this year.

‘‘I love the Santa Pa­rade. I’ve en­joyed my time in it and I will be back but I’m try­ing to spend a lot more time with my fam­ily at the mo­ment.

‘‘We need to make sure I main­tain a very good work-life bal­ance. It’s pretty ob­vi­ous to all Auck­lan­ders that I did not have a very good work-life bal­ance be­fore.’’
