I was born in the Midland Road area and still have family and friends living there. Together with the local Labour team, I regularly talk to the residents and find that many of them feel neglected and forgotten despite being so close to the town centre.
Litter, street drinking, and noise drag down the quality of life in what could be such a good place to live. I intend to work with local people to ensure that issues and concerns that they raise are heard and that they are no longer forgotten by the council.
It may be difficult, but I will not give up.
