Some Things I Would Personally Like To See Happen This Year In No Particular Order

More attention paid by Auckland Council to the Inner City: Better cleaning, free Wi Fi, safer roads and better ferries to start.

A cost effective way to track duty on International online purchases. The problem will get bigger and we all suffer one way or another. 

Less emphasis on sportsmen and more celebration of our success in business and the arts.

A really good contemporary Restaurant with a modern take on Indian food: I am thinking a Tandori inspired Blue Breeze Inn.

More Art in our everyday lives with a better way for young people to become patrons of local galleries large and small.

Stricter consent processes for franchised food outlets destined to fail. Better consent processes for innovative food outlets (Food Trucks) that enrich our CBD.

A higher profile for the Garden to Table initiative in our schools.

Restaurants realising it is OK to take bookings.

An app that lets you pay for your movie tickets online and check directly in to the screening (No need to collect your tickets: Rialto Cinema take heed).

Cheaper flights to and from the South Island.

Less PR driven Editorial in our short lead media.

Scootering to become an Olympic Sport (that wasn’t mine)

Honest politicians.

Wearable technology that doesn’t make you look like a geek. 

An app that reminds you when to take your rubbish out and which week is recycling.

More good places to drink for people who value quality over quantity and like to get dressed up when they go out.
