I suspect that many of you are not that fussed about who will be the next Mayor of Walsall or for that matter who runs the council as long as you get your bins emptied and your grass cut.
But you know local government is not just about bins and grass cutting as important as that might be. It’s also about how we look after our elderly. It’s about how we look after the interests of those in our community with disabilities. It’s about how we protect vulnerable children and adults. Surely fighting for the rights of individuals must stand for something?
I came into politics because I wanted to make a difference. Unlike some in politics I wanted to ensure that no matter where you were born everyone had an equal opportunity in life, people shouldn’t be victims of their Post Codes.
