We had previously written to the four candidates who, at the time, had been declared. These were: Cllr Stewart Golton of the Liberal Democrats; Dr Bob Buxton of the Yorkshire Party; Tracy Brabin MP of the Labour Party and Cllr Andrew Cooper of the Green Party. Now we have also written to Cllr Matthew Robinson, the recently declared candidate for the Conservative Party.
The purpose of writing was to acquire responses from each candidate to specific questions of particular interest to YDM and readers of our website (see: here). We look forward to hearing from Matthew in due course but of the four originally contacted, we have so far received a full response from the Green Party candidate (see: here); acknowledgements from the Yorkshire Party and Labour Party candidates but nothing, as yet, from the Liberal Democrat candidate.
We shall keep you informed!
