I’m not from Birmingham, I’m from the suburbs of another city – the city of Manchester, one I proudly defend in any Southern debate of Britain’s greatest cities. But the thought of Andy Street as the Mayor of a city is exciting – something that would convince me to visit the city of Birmingham more!
He’s charismatic, experienced and has the drive needed to take the region to the next level. Andy Street has spent his life working at John Lewis and has risen to the top. He’s not a ‘career’ politician, but a diligent, passionate individual who wants to transform the region and improve it.
Watch the space of this candidate – he’s one that has the potential to transform the public’s typical image of politicians.
