All candidates have been invited to attend the Hustings and will have an opportunity to present for a few minutes and then to take questions from the audience which will have been submitted in advance.

There are 5 candidates, with elections on the 2 May 2024.

Keith Tordoff – Independent Candidate
Felicity Cunliffe–Lister – Libdems
David Skaith – Labour
Kevin Foster – Green Party
Keane Duncan – Conservative Party
Paul Haslam – Independent Candidate

ZCH is a local climate action charity (and member of the North Yorkshire Climate Coalition) which seeks to work with elected representatives and advocates for ambitious, effective climate policies. Key areas of interest are the overall vision for rapid local transition to a net zero economy, warm homes, cleaner, cheaper homegrown energy, cleaner travel and upskilling for a low carbon economy.

The hope is that the Hustings will provide Mayoral candidates with a constructive opportunity to engage with local residents and business people around the climate agenda. This is a new departure in electoral terms, placing new powers in the hands of single successful candidate.
It’s a great opportunity to hear the views of those who wish to serve the public good in this way.

Anyone is welcome to attend.
