Liam Fogarty launches mayoral campaign with 10 big ideas in manifesto
Liam Fogarty has become the first mayoral candidate to launch their manifesto.
The independent, who has spent the past five years campaigning for a mayor for Liverpool, offers ten big ideas.
Social media features highly in the way he would communicate with the city (it's also how his campaign is being run).
Those uncomfortable with the Peel Holding's Liverpool Waters development will like the dig at the project, which he says must connect with the people of north Liverpool.
The city "doesn't need another 'pay-per-view' waterfront. And I want to be the mayor of Liverpool, not LiverPeel," he states.
He wants a Liverpool space programme to "mix short-term 'pop-up' solutuons and longer term projects to tackle eyesores and revive empty streets'.
There is a plan for a university Varsity Week, a bid for the World Expo, a £1-a-night hotel tax to fund tourism improvements, and a pledge to end petty local rivalries and create a 'Liverpool Bay Area'.
