Mayor of the Tees Valley

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, we need a champion, someone with vision, compassion & experience of regeneration and making things happen. Often politicians promise lots but deliver little. I won’t do this.

My vision is we have vibrant high streets, brilliant tourist attractions so people will visit here, like they used to. Great jobs in future industries such as digital and climate protection. And how about a transport system fit for the 21st century, with regular buses, more rail services and cycle routes, which is both affordable and efficient. I will also develop specific policies that improve lives for women and young people.

Importantly, we will unlock our greatest asset, our people ensuring their well being at is at the centre of everything we do.

I will transform the Tees Valley together with others who want to see this area transformed.

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. The people’s mayor.
