Come along and meet me in Cullercoats. This meeting is free and open to everyone. Get your free ticket HERE

In May 2024 you’ll get to elect the Mayor of the new, expanded, North East Mayoral Combined Authority covering an area from Berwick to Barnard Castle. I’m standing in that election as an independent candidate who’ll put region before party.

I’m holding meetings across the region so you can meet me in person and ask me questions. I’ll explain my vision for an integrated Total Transport Network, a Green New Deal for our local businesses and economy, and how we get a decent job for everyone. Decide for yourself if my plans make sense.

I’ve been North of Tyne Metro Mayor since 2019. In my manifesto I promised to unite the North and South of our region so we can control our own transport system. I’ve fulfilled that promise and landed £4.3 billion of investment for us – it’s about time the North East got our fair share.

Tickets are free, but please book in advance to guarantee a place. Doors open 6.30pm. Event starts 7.00pm. You can get a free ticket at Eventbrite HERE

This is a public meeting. We don’t have control over any attendee taking photographs or video and posting them on social media. We will also be taking some photographs and video at the meeting. Whilst we can try to accommodate you outside of the main audience, we cannot guarantee you won’t be visible on a social media post.

No public money is being spent on this event. All funds come from crowdfunding. 6,000 people have donated to my grassroots campaign.Town Hall meetings are an important part of my campaign to become the North East Mayor. I’m aiming to visit every main population centre in the North East Mayoral region and leaflet around each one. Every penny of our campaign funds will be essential to do that. So if you’ve already donated, thank you. And if you could please spread the word to anyone who can chip in a spare tenner, that would be great! We’re so close to our target, it would be great to get there!
