Did you know that the Council had published a Mayoral booklet? No, we didn’t either but then that’s not unusual. (Many thanks to Marie for bringing this to our attention.)
We were disappointed to find that the Mayoral booklet is not a book about how to be a Mayor (“Don’t convert the grants system into a cash machine for your mates, but if you do don’t get caught” etc.) but is a list of all the mayoral hopefuls!
Yay. Honestly. Yay.
Whatever. You should have had a copy delivered to your home (you will find it on the doormat underneath the ‘Fresh pizza delivered in three days’ leaflet) and you can find out more information about the elections on the Council site here.
If you don’t have a leaflet we have reproduce the info in the booklet for you below. The order is the same as that in the booklet which was decided by ballot apparently.
