Give Us Back Our Mayor! sign now

Every year a small group of 'elite' (sic) local councillors elect Aylesbury's Mayor, behind closed doors. Although the Mayor's role is considered to be nothing more than a ceremonial one these days, nevertheless, the Mayor's office remains a PUBLIC office - and therefore we believe that ANY future Mayor should now be elected DEMOCRATICALLY by us, the general voting public of Aylesbury, in an open and public local election: and NOT by nepotism and a 'Jobs for the boys and girls' system (We believe that it is both disgraceful and worrying that the last two Mayor's and Deputy Mayor's to have been voted in by this archaic closed system were Liberal Democrats!).

This petition has been set up then to:

1. Demand that Aylesbury's future Mayor's now be DEMOCRATICALLY elected by the people of Aylesbury, in the form of a yearly local public election.

2. That the office of Aylesbury's Mayor now be open to ANY individual living in Aylesbury who is 18+, and who so wishes to stand for election as Mayor of Aylesbury.

3. To hereby also serve notice that ANY local councillor who resists such a democratic change will be publicly named and shamed, and to be urged NOT to put themselves forward as a potential candidate for the position of Aylesbury's Mayor or Deputy Mayor.
