LOCAL ELECTIONS: It’s part 2 of our local election special as we hear from the candidates vying to become Mayor of North Tyneside
Local elections - it’s part 2 of our local election special as we hear from the candidates vying to become the next Mayor of North Tyneside.
Last week we heard from the labour and conservative candidates in the running to become Mayor of North Tyneside. Now let's hear from the Green Party candidate Penny Remfry, UKIP candidate Jack Thomson, and Liberal Democrat candidate John Appleby to hear their priorities should they be elected.
In the upcoming local elections, five candidates are vying for the position of Mayor of North Tyneside. The current Mayor, Labour's Norma Redfearn is defending the role, and was first elected in 2013. Her priorities include regeneration of the area and working to combat climate change.
The Conservative candidate is British Gas engineer and former Royal Marine Steven Robinson who, if elected will focus on tackling anti social behaviour and wants to freeze council tax.
