The Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor Michael Moulding has said as Mayor he will make everything Salford his business.
Mike believes that many of his opponents for mayor simply do not understand the role, what it entails. Mike Moulding says "The others think they are just managing Salford City Council and its services. A Mayor is bigger than this."
During the referendum campaign when Mike Moulding was campaigning for a YES vote which was achieved Mike explained many of the arguments for a directly-elected mayor.
Mike says "A good mayor should put the city on a national and international stage. Promoting the city at every opportunity, helping to bring business, investment and jobs."
Mike Moulding in highlighting the positives of what a mayor can do for the city also says "In Salford a good Mayor elected by the people for the people will stand up for Salfordians. For example, a well known housing association has been increasing rents year on year way above the rate of inflation where social housing that is suppose to be affordable is becoming unaffordable."
Mike continues "This sort of behaviour by organisations who rip Salfordians off will be told it is unacceptable. They will be told to manage their business in such a way as to keep costs down for Salford families. If they dont listen I will do something about it."
Mike Moulding concludes "This is just a couple of examples where a Mayor is bigger than what others think the role is. Its about promoting the city on a national and international stage. Its about standing up for Salfordians to corporate organisations that rip people off. As Mayor everything Salford is my business!" END
