    Rightly challenged … cultural difference is at the centre of international trade … while the product and price is central to the deal … the common values and mutual respect for the two cultures is fundamental … an apolitical / diplomatic appointment bridges this part of the gap …

    International networking? Do me a favour. If we are going to have a Mayor, then the post should at least be meaningful.

    We would have to list the roles of the Mayor, and the value it adds to Wrexham. Overseas business people like to meet / expect to see a community figurehead who is apolitical. If the Mayor hosts one serious visit a month, where a lot of investment has been put into a deal, the value is sales and jobs. For example, £1m in sales could be 10 continuous jobs. Multiply that up to the introduction of Kellogs, JCB …and the benefits start to add up for themselves

    Apolitical? The current mayor is Labour, not nuetral.
    How many of these visits has the Mayor hosted? Is the “£1 m in sales could be 10 continous jobs” completely made up, or based on some kind of research?
    I am sure that Kellogs did not base themselves here on account that we have a Mayor that is voted in by fellow councillors.

    Experience, facts and research. But if the community doesn’t want a Mayor, and we have a new outlook in 2010/20 … lets go that way.

    Frankly I very much doubt it.

    Having a read of the mayoral history led to The Workhouse in Wrexham, Denbighshire which is an interesting read in its own right. It refers to the towns first ever mayor Thomas Edgworth, working as clerk of the workhouse.
