In May 2021, I was Labour’s Candidate for Tees Valley metro mayor, hoping to join Tracy Brabin, Andy Burnham and Sadiq Khan to represent and lead one of our key English regions. My vision was for an exciting, people centred, transformed Tees Valley, where people worked together for a better future for everyone
I sadly did not win, but it was a hopeful and exciting campaign that offered a real alternative for people and places. Below are some of my key campaign videos, ideas and speeches.
