Mayoral hopeful launches election bid in Fenland
The battle to be the first mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has come to Fenland after one of the hopefuls for the role began his campaign in the district. Liberal Democrat candidate Rod Cantrill, pictured above with supporters, launched his campaign with an event at March Town Hall last Saturday. Mr Cantrill said: “I believe people living across our area think it’s time we did politics differently across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.
“This is the start of that.I am determined to fight to deliver the positive change our area desperately needs.
“For too long residents’ voices have been ignored by those in power, but this election is a huge chance to change that. I will be a listening Mayor who works with residents to improve their communities.” Mr Cantrill is one of seven candidates who have so far been chosen to contest May’s mayoral election. The others are Paul Bullen (UKIP), Peter Dawe (Independent), Stephen Goldspink (English Democrat), Julie Howell (Green), James Palmer (Conservative) and Kevin Price (Labour).
