Residents are already receiving election material from candidates for the new post of West Midlands Mayor. The position will cover Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton. These local authorities are going to be working together as a Combined Authority.
Kings Heath residents will have the chance to ask questions of the candidates for the job of Mayor at a hustings on Tuesday 25 April 2017 at 7.30 pm in the Baptist Church on Kings Heath High Street, opposite Asda.
The normal format of a hustings is that each candidate has an opportunity to explain why they think they are the best person for the job. Residents attending the meeting will then have the chance to ask questions of the candidates. All Kings Heath residents are welcome.
Whether you attend the hustings or not, it will be important to cast your vote for one of the candidates on 4 May.
