Cllr Sam Burden has been selected to stand as Labour’s candidate in the 2015 local elections by Hall Green Branch Labour Party.

Sam was the first Labour councillor elected in Hall Green for over 60 years in 2011.

Sam said “It has been a privilege to serve the people of Hall Green over the last four years and to work alongside Barry Bowles and Kerry Jenkins our other local councillors.

The last four years have been tough for Hall Green and Birmingham due to the Lib-DemTory cuts but we have fought hard for Hall Green and the local people.

Labour has a vision for Birmingham as a vibrant dynamic city.  Since Labour took control in 2012 we have seen the introduction of the living wage, devolution of local services, huge investment in cycling and the roll out of wheely bins to name just a few headlines.

In Hall Green top priority remains Hall Green library.  We have also supported youth work, seen the opening of Newey Park and run numerous campaigns to look after the area and retain its local character.”
