The Barnsley Central Labour MP Dan Jarvis has announced his intention to stand to be Sheffield City Region Mayor.
There's a vote for a regional mayor in May. He's the third Labour candidate to throw his hat in the ring.
Former Sports Minister and Sheffield MP Richard Caborn and Sheffield Councillor Ben Curran also want to be the Labour candidate.
Mr Jarvis, who was elected in Barnsley Central on 2011, says he'll try to remain as an MP even if elected. In a statement he said:
We are on course to elect a Mayor with no powers and no resources. The new mayor will need to leverage maximum influence to reach a consensus on how to proceed and drive our region forward. If my first act as Mayor was to stand down as an MP, I'd be needlessly squandering my ability to inflict pressure on the government through championing our cause in Parliament."
