This is not about electing a Mayor as such, but a chance to either elect your choice of leader of the council, or let the councillors appoint their own favourite.

Swale Borough Council are conducting a consultation which ends on 23rd September and provides a real chance to shake things up at the Council and introduce some real democracy. There are just two options from which to choice

Option 1 - Keep the same self-appointed leadership structure
Option 2 – you democractically elect your choice of mayor as leader

email with your option.

Note: Councillors unsurprisingly have already voted to protect the current regime which means that only a small section of the borough ever has the power to remove a badly performing leader. You also have no choice of which councillors end up on the cabinet and ultimately control the Council.
