In six months time (4th May, 2017), the first ever election for a West Midlands Mayor will be held. It’s an election we absolutely have to win.
Right now, so much is at stake for the schools, hospitals and public transport services that we rely on. As Labour’s candidate to be the first West Midlands Metro Mayor, I want to invite you to join my campaign.
We’re just getting started and we’re building our team. Members win elections when Labour wins elections. Our people have shown time and again – in places like Wolverhampton where we saw off the Tories in May 2015 – that Tory cash is no match for the talents, commitment and passion that we in Labour possess when we pull together.
This election is between a local Labour Mayor – always putting the West Midlands first – or a Tory candidate dancing to the tune of a Conservative government that has let our region down. They have starved our NHS of the cash needed to run our hospitals, ignored our housing shortage and returned our children to overcrowded classrooms.
Together – with our distinct identities, our shared history and our combined economic clout – a Labour Mayor for all the West Midlands can be a powerful leader for Wolverhampton, Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley, Solihull, Birmingham and Coventry.
