Loving the diversity
What do you like best about living in Mt Roskill?
The diversity of the people and the access to anywhere else in greater Auckland. How long have you lived here and where are you originally from?
I’ve lived in Mt Roskill for 17 years.
I came to Auckland from Whanganui in 1966. What do you like least and how can we fix it? The traffic. We can fix it by getting people out of cars and onto public transport.
There needs to be better education about public transport. Where’s the best place to buy dinner in Mt Roskill?
It all depends on what you like to eat.
Any of the Middle Eastern and Chinese food in Mt Roskill is really good. And who does the best fish’n chips?
I get mine from Roskill south. I can’t remember the name of the shop. Who is the Kiwi you admire most – and why?
Helen Clark. I just consider her to be one of the best politicians around and she’s actually a very nice person. If I was the mayor of Auckland I’d . . .
Talk to the people far more than councils do. When I’ve got a free few hours I like to . . .
Believe it or not, I like to go and help someone who can’t do a lot for themselves.
I’m a nurse so I do a lot of work with elderly residents. The spot in Central Auckland I’d recommend to tourists is...
The Domain. It’s beautiful in there – just lovely.
