MAYORAL REFERENDUM: 3RD MAY 2012
THE PROS AND THE CONS: A PUBLIC MEETING TO HELP YOU DECIDE
Bradford is one of ten cities that will be holding a referendum to decide if they want a Mayor on the 3rd May 2012.
Two other cities in West Yorkshire – Leeds and Wakefield – will also be making the same decision.
Will elected mayors who are directly elected by the people serve the interests of local residents and businesses better or will the present model of a leader chosen by other elected councillors be better for Bradford?
In view of the profound implications of the decision for the future of the city, Bradford Cathedral on behalf of the Common Good Network, JUST West Yorkshire, Bradford Muslim Women’s Council and the University of Bradford Student’s Union are holding a public event to help you decide.
Leaders and representatives from the main political parties in Bradford will be presenting the case for and against an elected mayor at the meeting. Wyn Grant, the Chair of the Elected Mayors and Leadership Commission will share the findings from his team’s research on the pros and cons of the mayoral system.
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in an interactive question and answer session to help them decide.
The meeting will take place on 30th April, from 7.00pm till 9.00pm at the Midland Hotel.
It is open to all residents and businesses in Bradford.
Voters from Leeds and Wakefield are also welcome.
As we expect the event to be over-subscribed places will be offered on a first-served first-come basis.
