Have your say

If you had the chance to quiz the man at the helm of Sheffield City Council, what would you ask him?

As part of a new series of Q&A sessions with some of the city’s big hitters, The Star is giving you a chance to put your questions to Sheffield Council chief executive John Mothersole.

Mr Mothersole is the non-political head of the council and takes responsibility for the work of the council’s thousands of paid staff, who run the local authority and provide our council services.

The Star’s Editor Nancy Fielder said: “We take great pride in being a media platform for the people and I’m looking forward to this new series of Q&A sessions, which aims to give everyone the chance to grill some of the city’s movers and shakers.

“I look forward to seeing the questions our readers submit and it will be interesting to hear what our first participant, Mr Mothersole, will have to say.”

A summary of the answers provided will then appear in The Star and online at

n To submit a question for Mr Mothersole, email with ‘John Mothersole Q&A’ in the subject line, or write to John Mothersole Q&A, Editorial department, The Star, York Street, Sheffield, S1 1PU by Friday, May 13.
