Today, I had the honour of meeting with the New Youth Mayor for Mansfield, Scarlett Sykes.
We discussed many issues, mainly focusing on the engagement of young people in politics, particularly empowering women to get involved, and how to tackle mental health.
One of Scarlett’s key pledges throughout her campaign was to build a better youth parliament within Mansfield and to help young people become more engaged in the political process. I want to help her make this happen and therefore I am writing to school councils about youth engagement.
Involving more young people in politics is something I am very passionate about and I wish Scarlett the best of luck in fulfilling her goals and improving the lives of the people of Mansfield.
