Auckland Future, the new centre-right ticket for the upcoming Auckland Council elections in October, has selected lawyer Rob Harris to contest the Albert-Eden-Roskill ward.

Mr Harris specialises in construction and property law at the law firm Minter Ellison Rudd Watts.

Auckland Future campaign organiser Sue Wood said Mr Harris is a great addition to the team and will bring a fresh face to the Council table.

"Rob is smart and energetic and has the professional experience to make a great contribution to the community," she said.
