Mayoral Candidates 2015

BEDFORD BOROUGH MAYORAL CANDIDATES – 7 May 2015

 

The election for Mayor of Bedford Borough will be on Thursday 7 May 2015, between 7am – 10pm. On the day, local government voters in the borough have the opportunity to decide who will be their Elected Mayor for the next four years. The list of candidates has now been officially confirmed.

 

DOUGLAS, Tim – Labour Party

HAYNES, Adrian John – UK Independence Party (UKIP)

HODGSON – Dave – Liberal Democrat

LOWE – Steve – Independent

PARMAR – Jas – The Conservative Party

 

Most decisions of the Council are made by the Mayor and a Cabinet chosen by the Mayor from the Borough Councillors. The Mayor and Cabinet operate within a policy framework and budget set by the Council as a whole. Councillors who aren’t in the Cabinet scrutinise the decisions of the Mayor and Cabinet, as well as fulfil their extensive community roles.

 

Bedford Borough Council is one of only 15 Councils in the country (outside of London) to have a Directly Elected Mayor. Mayoral elections in the UK use the Supplementary Vote (SV) system.  Under SV, voters select their first and second choices from the list of candidates.
