Democratise the council before making a new Lord Mayor job!
The Greens and FF Bill want a new job created – elected Lord Mayor – this was debated. Brid argued that this is putting the cart before the horse – democratise the council first, then worry about a lord mayor. Unelected managers appointed to our councils, make the decisions, against the interests of the people, and Brid gives many examples here. Lets restore democracy to elected representatives as our first priority.
