Want an Elected Mayor?


Recommended Posts

From the news story: "The council will pass a resolution to adopt the appropriate new executive arrangements on November 1 and they will come into force three weeks after the local elections in May." That should be three days.


Apart from the reduced number of executive members, I'm not sure there's much to the idea of appointing the leader for four years. The nominee for leader would come from the majority party, whose elected councillors could vote (behind doors) to change leader (and if a defeated leader didn't stand down, they could probably face discipline and expulsion from the party).

Well most people wouldn't have known what it was about anyway... if indeed they actually knew a consultation was being carried out.


As it was instigated by the former bods in charge how come local Labour lot didn't plug it and spead the word a bit more :wink:
