My West Yorkshire Survey

I believe the role of Mayor is about listening to the views of residents across West Yorkshire. I'm always keen to hear people's views, get their feedback and explore their ideas. With that in mind I'm asking people to fill in my 'West Yorkshire Survey' so I can hear from you.
