The campaign for a Democratically Elected Mayor of Croydon ("DEMOC") are a group of local residents who have joined together for the sole purpose of seeing a democratically elected mayor installed in Croydon in place of the existing Council Leader.

Many of our committee are active within local residents' associations across the borough and all of us have a keen interest in the wider community in which we live.

We initially came together on 9 July 2019 at a public meeting in Purley to discuss the feasibility of having a democratically elected mayor and, backed by overwhelming support we decided to campaign for this change which we feel will benefit the whole borough.
