Running for Mayor

I’m standing to become Labour Mayor for the Tees Valley. It’s time for a new type of politics that has people at it’s heart. Tees Valley can be better; life is still too hard for too many people. High streets declining, crime rising, people trying but not always getting anywhere. Teesside and the Tees Valley needs a champion, someone with vision, compassion & experience of regeneration & making things happen. Often politicians promise lots but deliver little. I won’t do this.

My vision is to transform the Tees Valley together with others who want to see this area transformed. Get behind local projects & local business, prepare us for the future, putting technology & green industry at the heart of an industrial strategy, to create more and better jobs.jessie joe jacobs mayor tees valley

I will tackle the housing issues and problems in our communities by working to create more and better homes & supporting community projects that have regeneration at their heart.

I will also develop specific policies that improve lives for women and young people.

Finally, I will listen to you. Over the course of my campaign I will be asking the questions, what do you think would transform this area, what should we focus on and how would you get involved in making this a reality.

This is all about you. I want to be your mayor. Not big businesses. Not politician’s. But instead, the people’s mayor.
