Council leaders lukewarm on mayors, to say the least

Council leaders lukewarm on mayors, to say the least

🕔01.Mar 2011

The almost universal disdain for the government’s enthusiasm for elected mayors amongst those most directly effected is crisply summarised by INLOGOV’s visiting lecturer.

He writes:

“Of the current leaders of the ‘Big 12’ cities, 8 are Labour, 3 Liberal Democrat, and 1 Conservative. Their views and particular concerns vary, as does the intemperance of their language. But, apart from Leicester, who are bypassing the Bill’s procedures and electing their mayor this May, support for mayors even as political, let alone managerial, leaders of their authorities is pretty well zero.”
