I WEL­COME MAYOR PLANS

Stockport Times West - - YOUR VIEWS -

THE re­cent agree­ment for Greater Manch­ester to in­tro­duce a ‘Metro Mayor’ for the city re­gion as part of the de­vo­lu­tion pack­age should be a huge op­por­tu­nity to freshen up our pol­i­tics.

It will also help us to bet­ter un­der­stand what Stock­port will get out of this ar­range­ment.
