Mayoral and County Council Elections

Elections TODAY, Thursday 4 May, for the new role of Mayor of Cambridge-Peterborough and for the County Council, including the ward for Coton and Hardwick.

Mayoral candidates Rod Cantrill (Lib Dem) and James Palmer (Conservative)  are both firmly against the concrete guided busway breaching the Green Belt and the West Fields, and are opposed to City Deal policies and practices. Cllr Kevin Price for Labour (who is also Deputy Chair of the City Deal Joint Assembly) is less forthright but is pleased the City Deal has reset the process and is re-visiting the evaluation of the routes and the Park+Ride sites. All other candidates have also pledged to improve public transport in the region.

Whichever way you decide to vote, please do vote!
