DEBATEHosted by Gaydio’s Emma Goswell, this is your chance to meet and quiz the candidates looking to take on the top job as part of one of the biggest changes to local government in Greater Manchester in decades.
It’s your chance to see where they stand on the issues that matter to you, from tackling the housing shortage to what it means for local businesses.
