These may be the two biggest elections for a generation - we must choose wisely

Posted by Jenny Stewart

Chief Executive of Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce

Fri 21st, Apr

With all the excitement over the announcement of the General Election in June, you could be forgiven for forgetting that we have another important election coming up, and soon!

Just next month, Thursday May 4, the Liverpool City Region will vote for our first Metro Mayor.

So, that’s two of the most momentous votes in a generation taking place within five weeks of each other.

And with new power comes new hope and new opportunity, and there can be no better time to make our case for significant infrastructure investment into the city region so we can give our economy a turbo boost.

Period of calm

Businesses like certainty and they prefer a settled economic and political landscape.

And while the run-up to both ballots creates some temporary uncertainty, the outcome may just provide a period of political and economic calm - something we have badly needed since the financial crash almost a decade ago.

This General Election is without doubt a one issue vote. Whatever the outcome, the government of the day will have a clear mandate from the people.

New opportunities

Business confidence in the Liverpool City Region is at an all-time high. Bold, strategic, and steadfast leadership will be required to ensure it continues.  The new Metro-Mayor will need to be ready to hit the ground running to establish strong links with the newly elected government, with a clear and compelling case for investment into the city region and the wider Northern Powerhouse at the ready. A Crossrail for the North must be top of that list.

Strong leadership

Earlier this year, Sir Howard Bernstein stepped down as chief executive of Manchester City Council after almost two decades of dynamic and transformational leadership.

He put aside partisan politics and forged strong links with both Labour and Conservative Governments and Manchester has reaped the rewards of that. We need our new Metro Mayor to have the same impact.

Both elections have the potential to have a profound effect on our regions economy for years to come so, whoever you vote for, make your choice an informed one.
