As did Andy Burnham when he was elected at Greater Manchester.  The short answer is he can't give 100% to two jobs and Dan Jarvis should have resigned his seat when elected Mayor.

Maybe one of them is a 'non-job' ?- I'll let you decide which.

Plenty of people only look at the name of the party, as we all know.

There can't be many MPs who haven't had that said about them by some constituents at some time.

Plus: whyever is the new 'county' post called a Mayor?

It's nothing of the sort. Maybe 'REEVE' would be a better name.

After all, a sheriff derives the title from a shire-reeve.
