Market Champion Mark Dobson steps down
Councillor Mark Dobson who has been Markets champion for 6 months has stepped down from his role. In the Guardian Leeds blog he is quoted as saying:
“Now these objectives have all been achieved, and I have done what I set out to do effectively, I believe, and have every confidence that the new markets manager, who takes up her position in January, has all the necessary skills to drive the business forward, work with the traders productively and become another champion for the markets in Leeds.”
Mark Dobson attended our public launch in April 2010 and spoke passionately about the Market, he signed our petition to lower traders rents, invest more money on the Market builiding and give more say to Traders in how the Market is run.
