Mick Bower has denounced the ‘political classes’ for letting down the people of Yorkshire and the region, in an impassioned article explaining his philosophy.
“It’s time for our voices to be heard” he told The Yorkshire Post, in the newspaper’s run down of the candidates for Mayor of the Sheffield City Region.
The Yorkshire Party candidate said: “We’ve missed out on tens of millions of pounds due to the council leaders putting self-interest above the needs of the people.
“For me, becoming Mayor of South Yorkshire isn’t a career opportunity. It’s more than a full-time job. I was born and bred in Rotherham and now my wife and I are bringing up our teenage daughters there.
“We are the party of One Yorkshire devolution. The City Region is too small and unambitious to stop us falling further behind. It’s time for a prosperous and fair Yorkshire that puts people first.
“We need to come together and support each other; rediscover the community spirit that made our region special to tackle modern ills like loneliness and insecurity.”
Speaking to Yorkshire Party members and supporters, Mick said: “We’ve been taken for granted for too long. It’s time for real change.”
Mick has already set out an ambitious five-point plan if elected in the May 3 poll.
