Hello and thanks for visiting.

I’m John McCabe and I’m standing as an Independent candidate in the North of Tyne mayoral election on 2 May 2019.

This is a huge moment for the North of Tyne.  We have a once in a generation opportunity to take control over investment and decision-making that can transform the lives of people living, learning and working in the North of Tyne region.

I want us to create an economy in which employers can grow their businesses and create jobs; where we provide people of all ages with the skills and support they need to reach their full potential, where we support the development of our towns, promote our coastal communities and protect our countryside.  And I want this to just be the beginning.  I believe the new Mayor should start work immediately on securing an even bigger and better deal with the government resulting in more investment in our communities and more decisions taken locally.
