A simple message today: Mayors have been shown to work in the great cities of London, Paris, New York and San Francisco. If you are happy with the way the great city of Newcastle is run then so be it, but I have a vision of a city that is:
- with thriving business opportunities
- genuinely competing with London, Manchester and the Scottish cities
and Boris Bikes, cycle lanes and a city that is genuinely open to all.
So when you go the polls in Newcastle I urge you to vote for a Mayor and our Conservative candidates who have worked so hard to give local voters local representation.
For my part as several thousand people from the South East read this blog my simple message is Vote Boris! He has done a good job in London and anything is preferable to the awful Ken Livingston
