Kirklees Leaders Question Time
Monday 16th July 2018
From 7pm to 8.30pm (arrival from 6.15pm)
Dewsbury Town Hall, Wakefield Old Road, Dewsbury WF12 8DG
Do you have a pressing question for our local politicians? Come along to this live and interactive Question Time style event to hear your questions being put to a panel of councillors.
Local government touches every aspect of our day-to-day lives – so the decisions that our local leaders make will affect you, your family and our communities. This event is a chance for you to put your questions directly to some of our local leaders.
You will hear from four local party leaders on the night:
- Councillor Shabir Pandor, Leader of Kirklees Council
and Labour Group Leader
- Councillor David Hall, Conservative Group Leader
- Councillor John Lawson, Liberal Democrat Group Leader
- Councillor Andrew Cooper, Green Party Group Leader
The Kirklees Leaders Question Time will be hosted by Rose Condo, who is a writer, poet and creative arts facilitator. Originally from Canada, Rose lived in Huddersfield for over 5 years, during which time she worked with the Lawrence Batley Theatre and has supported many local community engagement projects.
Rose has recently run workshops for schoolchildren as part of the Huddersfield 150 celebrations, and has participated in other local democracy events in Kirklees.
How to take part
This is a free event, open to everyone.
Growing a stronger local democracy
This event is organised by Kirklees Council. Our Question Time is based on one of the recommendations from the Kirklees Democracy Commission’s “Growing a stronger local democracy” report. Our citizens have told us that you want more opportunities to have face-to-face contact with the people who represent you. The Question Time format was suggested by citizens who took part in some of our previous events. We welcome your feedback.
