Statement to voters
Patrick is a secondary school teacher, and has either lived or worked in the constituency of Hall Green since moving from London 13 years ago. He has strong links with local community and regularly volunteers his time in order to give back to the area that has welcomed him in. Patrick is a committed cyclist, runner and allotment holder.
“Hall Green is fantastic place to live but some real problems exist in some areas which have been left to fend for themselves. Our public services are being squeezed dry and the effects are clear to see. Social care services are under intense strain, and many other essential services have been slashed, then slashed again.
This area deserves better. If elected for Hall Green I would strive to use my real life experience to provide real opposition, and create real change.
My priorities would be to make sure that those areas left behind got the investment and attention they need to reverse the blight of austerity. The real-life deprivation that exists side-by-side with affluence isn’t acceptable in the 21st century. I’d also push for an improved local, public transport system. Giving people a realistic transport choice by improving bus services would unleash the potential of an area held back by traffic-choked roads. In addition I’d highlight and take action on the serious and on-going funding crisis in our local schools.”
