Four Good Reasons to Vote Labour on Thursday!

Here are some key issues that I hope residents in Wednesfield North will hold in their mind when they are Voting on 6th May – In the Super Thursday Elections.

• Vote for Phil Bateman Labour and Co-operative . I have campaigned long and hard to protect the Essington Green Belt from thousands of dwellings that developers are just waiting to swoop on. I am committed to keep fighting against that proposal. Conservative led South Staffordshire Council is still progressing it as one of their Options. Their Public Consultation document will be released, after the elections later this Summer. You have been warned!

• Campaigned and still campaigning to save Wednesfield Police Station. We have been campaigning for years! Its still there. A Vote for Labour in the Mayoral election and a vote for Simon Foster Labour, for the Police and Crime Commissioner Elections, will help bring this about.

• Crime is a big topic here in Wednesfield North at the moment, more vehicle crime is taking place with a gang stealing Catalytic Converters. I want more Bobbies on the beat, and I have made that clear over recent years, and in recent weeks. I want you to back me with a strong mandate to press for this with the new Police and Crime Commissioner. Vote Simon Foster Labour – for the new Police and Crime Commissioner.

• Liam Byrne the Labour Candidate for Metro Mayor has a great policy that I do hope you will support, by voting Labour at the Mayoral Elections. He has committed to have a Youth Workers back in every Neighbourhood. A policy that I support strongly.

These are four very good reasons for residents in Wednesfield North to Vote Labour in these elections. I will state more reasons every day in the lead up to May 6th 2021.
