Your chance to question Birmingham city council leadership candidates
The main hustings for the Birmingham city council leadership election are just 48 hours away.
All five candidates will be at the CBSO Centre, Berkley Street, at 6pm on Thursday November 19, to answer questions about their plans for running Britain’s biggest public body.
Only two hustings were officially sanctioned by the West Midlands Labour party.
One, an internal session for Labour councillors and members, will be held on November 23, the day the city Labour group meets to vote for a new leader.
The other, Thursday night’s session, is organised by the Birmingham Post and Birmingham Mail and Chamberlain Files. The audience will consist of around 120 members of the public, up to 70 city councillors and 70 Labour party members.
All public tickets have been snapped up, but we are working to release more if we can.
Anyone can submit a question, and a selection will be asked at the hustings.
The question must relate to a matter that is the responsibility of Birmingham city council.
Questions can be emailed to Mandy.Tsang-Wetherald@rjfpa.com or tweeted to @ChamberlainFile with the hashtag #brumleader, preferably by 5.00pm tomorrow.
The candidates to replace Sir Albert Bore as council leader are: John Clancy, Ian Ward, Barry Henley, Mike Leddy and Penny Holbrook.
