West Midlands Mayoral Debate – Wolverhampton
Mon 24 April 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
On 4 May 2017 the people of the West Midlands will be asked to have their say and vote for the region’s first Metropolitan Mayor.
Representing the three major cities of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton and seven local authority areas in the West Midlands, the new Mayor will have devolved powers from Central Government to oversee transport, housing, economic policy and skills.
Overseeing a potential budget worth billions of pounds, the new Mayor will be the voice of the West Midlands in Whitehall.
This is your chance to find out more and quiz them about their aims for the region, their powers and how they intend to make a difference - plus what they intend to do to make sure Wolverhampton and the Black Country gets its fair share of resources.
Hosted by the BBC’s Adrian Goldberg it is the only chance the people of Wolverhampton will get to hear directly from the candidates and put their questions to them.
The event is being hosted by the University of Wolverhampton in partnership with West Midlands Combined Universities.
*All guests to be seated by 6:15pm to ensure the event starts promptly.
