Why I'm backing the City of Culture bid: Tudor Evans
BIDDING to become UK City of Culture 2017 really is a no-brainer. We have an ambitious vision for Plymouth and this is exactly the sort of race we should be running in.
Yes, we're facing a really tough economic climate, but we must embrace opportunities that will support our priorities; creating jobs for people, driving economic activity and raising the city's profile.
The City of Culture bid will do just that. We've seen the economic boost that bidding in similar competitions has given other cities around the country, now it's our turn for a piece of that action.
We'd expect to see benefits in the build up to 2017, during the year and then a lasting legacy of a stronger creative industries sector, inward investment, tourism, employment, and of course job creation.

The bidding process itself will inspire our communities and is already uniting the city as we call on everyone to 'back the bid'. New partnerships are being created as we all pull together with a common goal.
I'm proud to be the council leader in this city of ours and I want to shout about how great Plymouth is to the rest of the UK and the world.
I'm backing the bid for Plymouth to become UK City of Culture 2017 because there will be enormous benefits for the city, for its residents who live here and those who do business here.
