I am proud to be the first directly elected Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region. For too long I believe too many decisions about our future were taken by people too far away, who didn’t know enough or care enough about our region. Devolution gives us a huge opportunity to realise the strengths and potential of our six boroughs and all our communities.
- Working with my Combined Authority colleagues, I want to deliver a confident, dynamic and prosperous City Region that will be a positive economic and creative asset for the UK.
- We want to drive prosperity, encourage innovation and expand opportunities for people and communities in every part of our City Region.
- We’re a place with an extraordinary story and outstanding physical and economic assets. We have a recognizable global brand and an abundance of creative energy.
- It’s a new beginning – a different kind of politics that’s rooted in the values we share and the things that matter most to our communities
- We’re not just another tier of government. We’re here to make a difference and provide a new kind of democratic leadership for our region that’s strategic, visionary and engaged.
- It’s a chance to bring our region together by pooling our strengths and talents to our mutual advantage.
- It’s a chance to enhance our influence and put ourselves on the map nationally and internationally
