Voters in the Tees Valley are now only 12 months away from electing their first Metro Mayor. Discussions over whether or not the city region should have a mayor have been overtaken by the need to put in place the arrangements to be ready once the votes have been counted and the mayor announced on Friday 5th May, 2017.
Centre for Cities is organising a policy discussion in each of the city regions that have signed devolution deals. Our aim is to bring voters and key local stakeholders together to discuss: The first 100 days – what should be at the top of the mayor’s in-tray?
We will be hearing from:
Cllr Sue Jeffrey Former Chair of the Tees Valley Combined Authority, Leader of Redcar & Cleveland
Prof John Mawson Director, Institute for Local Governance
Rachel Anderson Head of Policy and Representation, North East Chamber of Commerce
Alexandra Jones Chief Executive, Centre for Cities (Chair)
The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and a drinks reception for guests. Register on eventbrite below:
