VS6 Metro Mayor Hustings: The Vision for Liverpool City Region
What will your Metro Mayor do for communities and the voluntary sector?
VS6 is holding a special hustings to give members of the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector the chance to quiz the candidates as they lay out their visions, priorities and strategies for the future of Liverpool City Region.
**On the platform**
Steve Rotheram, Labour
Tony Caldeira, Conservative
Carl Cashman, Liberal Democrat
Tom Crone, Green
The hustings will be chaired by Rev Canon Dr Ellen Loudon, Independent Chair of the VS6 Partnership.
The first ever Mayor of Liverpool City Region will be elected in just three months, with hard powers over apprenticeships and skills, housing and planning, transport, and health and social care integration. The Mayor will chair the powerful city region Combined Authority, and with a large mandate, will hold signficant ‘soft power’ too. This is a historic opportunity to use devolution to forge a social partnership that puts people and place first, creating a healthy, happy and socially just Liverpool City Region. Communities and citizens need to be at the heart of this process, and our sector should be driving it.
