It’s been my experience of Pete Lowe that he has the necessary wisdom, after his years leading Dudley Council. He has the ability to analyse the complexities of modern political life and to find solutions for them. At the same time, Pete has the humility to listen to all points of view and the integrity to bend to them when the circumstances require it. Pete will be an authentic, socialist Black Country voice for the West Midlands and that’s why I have no hesitation in endorsing his candidacy for Mayor of the West Midland in 2020.
