Statement to voters
After a long, enjoyable and successful career in teaching, Ruth decided it was time to move into local government so she could spearhead the issues that she cares about.
With 16 years experience as a councillor, including 7 as leader, Ruth passionately campaigns on local issues and has now decided to take that passion into national politics.
With her strong support for environmental issues, Ruth, as Wolverhampton South East MP, would seek to protect the green belt and is fully behind the Seven Cornfields campaign, Ruth said
"The climate crisis is one of the most important issues to face the country. After all we only have one planet!
"Central to the protection of the environment have to be the green belts around our towns and cities which are an important sanctuary for wildlife and provide a calming place for people to visit.
"I am looking forward to working with local campaigners on the Stop the Seven Cornfields Development campaign as this area is much loved by local people and a haven for local wildlife"
