Ahead of the Metro Mayor election coming up in May we have a huge amount of work to do. This is a new role and people across the City Region don’t know a great deal about it. I was a brick layer, I’ve set up my own business and I worked to help re-build the Falklands after the conflict. I believe that I can inspire people to put their trust in me. But I can’t do it without your help. Without your help I won’t be able to reach the 1.1million voters in our region. We need to win this election and we need to win it big in order to show the signs that we can get Labour back in to government and Jeremy Corbyn into number ten.
