WEST YORKSHIRE MAYOR: The candidates

 

West Yorkshire Mayor candidates | On Thursday the 6th of May, you’ll have the chance to vote for the first ever Mayor of West Yorkshire, covering Leeds, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.

Before the election, we’ll find out what some of you would like to see improve in the region, but here are the candidates in the running.

This will be the first election of a Mayor of West Yorkshire. The role was created as part of a devolution deal agreed by the leaders of the 5 West Yorkshire councils.

It means that West Yorkshire will have access to national funding to invest in public transport, support business, improve skills and living standards while tackling the climate emergency.

The Mayor will also assume the powers currently held by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

More details can be found here.
