York election candidates to face questions about property and the economy at hustings event
Business leaders will be able to quiz York election candidates about business and the city’s economy at a hustings event next month.
Ahead of the City of York Council elections in May, York & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is holding a hustings event with representatives from all political parties on Wednesday, 1 March.
It will discuss topics such as development, planning and economic growth in the city with political leaders.
Presentations will be made by Ashley Mason (Liberal Democrats), Claire Douglas (Labour), Martin Rowley (Conservative) and a Green Party candidate to be announced.
Following presentations those in attendance will be given the opportunity to ask questions of all of the candidates.
It is being led by the York Property Forum. A forum spokesperson said: “In an era in which politics is often accused of being out of touch with voters, it is wonderful to see all parties on City of York Council participating in this hustings event.
“Now is your chance to hold them directly to account and to offer you advice and guidance on how we can take our city to the next level.”
The event takes place at York St John University on March 1 between 5pm and 7pm.
Tickets cost £25 and are available here.
