Why are we Campaigning?
Birmingham’s an exceptional city. It’s young; it’s incredibly diverse and is built on an extraordinary industrial heritage.
And despite more than its fair share of problems, such as the decline of major employers like Rover, its people and its politicians have worked hard over the past 20 years to make the city a great place to live and work.
Brummies are rightly proud of their home.
But it hasn’t yet unleashed its full potential. We need more jobs and a healthier local economy, better transport, better schools, less crime and better care.
We think that’s down to the system that governs the city – not its people or their political leaders.
We need the power to do more, which is why we campaigned for an elected mayor in 2012.
We are continuing our campaign to hold our politicians accountable, raise awareness of democratic processes and engagement with Brummies to ensure Birmingham gets the leadership it deserves.
