I’m proud to pledge my support for Pete Lowe for West Midlands mayor. Pete is a real man of the community, an activist first and foremost, who puts action ahead of words and bureaucracy.

A lifelong trade unionist and socialist, he will always fight for social justice and equality, and stamp out hate in all its forms.

I believe Pete is the best man for the job to ensure genuine anti austerity policy is implemented in our region, and get a fair funding deal for the West Midlands.
