Mayoral booklet

This booklet must be sent to all electors by law. Look out for yours in the post. The producer is Dawn Carter-McDonald, the Returning Officer. The booklet contains an election address, or statement, from all those candidates for Mayor who chose to be included.

The content is the responsibility of the candidates themselves, provided they follow legal requirements, and the views expressed are their own. Their names and details appear in random order – drawing lots determines the order they appear in. This booklet also includes information on how to vote.
