John Harrison Interview
I've spent 3 days now campaigning with Labour's John Harrison, North Tyneside's elected Mayor. He's up for re-election on June 4th, the same day as the European poll, so we've had a common interest knocking on doors and meeting people at street stalls.
Regular blog readers will know that I'm (ahem) not the greatest fan of elected Mayors in principle, but John has really made the office work in North Tyneside. He's very approachable too, and it was striking just how many people came up to him to say thank you for helping deal with their problems. He thoroughly deserves a second term.
