Statement to voters
I am passionate about Birmingham and proud to campaign and fight elections in my home of Ladywood. Residents often tell me that they are tired of a complacent Labour taking their votes for granted – and I relish giving them more choice in elections.
I have long campaigned for Mental Health service provision to receive full equality with physical health – a journey started by the LibDems in government, and one we must continue. Social Care is in crisis and carers urgently need fair wages and better support. All of this means that we have a big mountain to climb, but I have been lucky to meet some inspirational people across Birmingham who are working to make this happen, and I continue to support them.
I’m a qualified Teacher and so very much aware of the pressures faced by teachers and staff, as well as students. I support young people in various ways, such as helping them grow their campaigning experience and supporting them standing for election.
I also believe it’s vital that our environmental protections are strengthened, and that civil liberties for LGBT+, BME and others are protected and improved.
