Vote No to a directly elected Mayor for Guildford

On 13th October 2016 voters in Guildford will go to the polls to decide whether or not to change the system by which the Borough is Governed. The choice on offer is between the current ‘strong leader’ model and the directly elected mayor model. I am backing the cross party campaign to retain the current model. The current system is cheaper to administer, better for holding the Leader of the borough to account and retains our current ceremonial Mayor, a role which dates back centuries.
