Marathon Tour

Meeting people across the region

You will see me running for Mayor across the region.

In April, I am participating in the London Marathon to support Guide Dogs, a cause close to my heart and any sponsorship is welcome!

In conjunction with my marathon preparation, I am also conducting my mayoral campaign in an environmentally conscious and sustainable way. This initiative allows me to explore every corner of our region on foot, committing to a reduced carbon footprint. I’m running for Mayor quite literally!

Below, you will find a schedule of my combined campaign stops and marathon training sessions. I warmly invite you to join me when I’m in your area to discuss my plans and listen to your ideas. Together, we can envision and shape a brighter future for our region.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who supported and voted for me, as well as those who engaged and enlightened me about the opportunities and challenges facing the people of York and North Yorkshire. It has been a thoroughly invigorating experience, and I would do it again in an instant.

I’m proud of the decisions I made and each policy I proposed in my manifesto. I sincerely wish the new Mayor the very best and hope he unashamedly steals some of my proposals.

I would also like to thank those sending kind words in my inbox… though it seems my dogs still claim the lion’s share of the fanmail!

Unfortunately, I have not been asked to serve this time, but I remain committed to our county’s future. I will continue to serve my local community as an independent Councillor.

Paul.
