The branch held a selection meeting last night to determine who would be the Labour candidate to stand in the by-election for Hall Green North on the 6th May to replace current councillor Lou Robson who is standing down due to a new job.
We had six fantastic women candidates, all of whom will make fantastic councillors and it was great to see three branch members standing for selection.
On the night, branch member Saima Suleman was the winning candidate and we look forward to hearing more about her campaign plans and encourage members to get involved over the coming weeks and months.
Don’t forget that in the West Midlands, we also have the Metro Mayor and the Police and Crime Commissioner also on the 6th May. You can apply for a postal vote – the deadline to apply for a postal vote for the elections on 6 May 2021 is 5pm on Tuesday 20 April.
