First full day proper of the short campaign for me - after some leafletting in Killingworth, it was onto Wallsend town centre to collect signatures for a petition.
Labour elected Mayor John Harrison has pledged to fight for a "multi-versity" on the banks of the Tyne in Wallsend. Characteristically, the Tories have opposed the plan, although it would bring huge benefits to the area.
Judging by the sheets of names we had on the petition, John seems to have judged the public mood spot on.
Now onto the Meadowwell Centre to join a garden party and look at the sustainable environment programme (right up my street) and then onto campaign in Durham.
No rest for the wicked! And its only Day One!!
