Leeds Question Time: Does Leeds Need A Mayor?
Start Date: 27/04/2012
Monday 30th April 6pm - 8pm The Rose Bowl, Leeds Metropolitan University
On May 3rd the people of Leeds are being asked to consider whether they wish to have a vote for an Elected Mayor. If the vote is a 'yes'. Leeds may have an Elected Mayor by November this year.
This is not a ceremonial role, but one of strategic power, how much power is yet to be revealed.
What is your view? Would Leeds benefit from having an Elected Mayor with considerable decision making powers, or would this be counter-productive? Maybe you haven't yet given it any thought? Maybe you don't normally vote in local elections, so would this stir you to?
Because we are not entirely sure what having an Elected Mayor in Leeds will actually mean for Leeds but have many questions, we decided that we'd like to find out more by hosting an event where we can all start to understand what the implications for Leeds, and the wider region, might be.
