Oppose an Elected Mayor for Medway

Trish Marchant says: Medway Council are asking residents to decide whether they want an elected Mayor or a Ceremonial Mayor.  An elected mayor would be voted for by the electorate at the same time as the local elections.

We oppose the imposition of an elected Medway Mayor, we oppose the concentration of power in one individual, we oppose the loss of democratic representation of our elected councillors in favour of that individual, and we oppose the increased costs that the additional bureaucratic burden and salaried position will incur.

Residents wishing to submit responses via Medway Council’s web page have until Wednesday, 30th June 2010.
