Priyanca Radhakrishnan now the local MP for Maungakiekie

Brittany Keogh Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours, National's Denise Lee is no longer the MP for the Maungakiekie electorate after the official election results showed Labour candidate Priyanca Radhakrishnan beat her by 635 candidate votes. Denise Lee holds the 34th spot on National's list, which means she's out of Parliament because National only has 33 seats now. That means if you live in Ellerslie or Greenlane, Radhakrishnan is now your local MP.

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.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
