Well, we are now gearing up and into a proper debate in advance of the Birmingham Elected Mayor referendum in May 2012.
Today Progress published my piece on why Brummies should say Yes to a Birmingham Mayor, find it here: http://www.progressonline.org.uk/2011/10/26/the-case-for-an-elected-birmingham-mayor/
We are also seeing Twitter activity (see the hashtag Yes2BrumMayor) and Facebook activity rising day by day.
Our Yes campaign now also has an active website that we are continuously building up as well as getting offers from volunteers to help with the campaign however they can. Check out the website here: http://yestobirminghammayor.com/
And finally the No campaign has started under the moniker ‘say no to a power freak’.
We look forward to debating with them on how Birmingham should be able to move forward and help itself create economic growth, create new jobs and opportunities, strengthen and empower communities and make the city an even better place for Brummies…
