This afternoon I went to Giovanni's Restaurant in Cardiff for the Mayor4Cardiff Fundraiser.
Whether or not we agree with Cardiff having a directly elected mayor. The most important thing is that the people of Cardiff are given a choice on the matter. In order for this to happen a referendum must take place.
In order to initiate the referendum a petition must be collected with at least 10% of the electorate in Cardiff signing. Thats approximately 30,000 people! These signatures can not be collected online and must be collected within a 6 month period.
It was great to have cross-party support to give the Cardiff people a choice on the matter.
