A by-election for Hall Green

With Sam Burden standing down from the Council we will now be having a by-election in Hall Green on the 4th May, the same day as the mayoral election for the West Midlands Combined Authority.

Sam, Labour’s first councillor to be elected for Hall Green back in May 2011, said “It has been a privilege to represent the people of Hall Green on Birmingham City Council over nearly 6 years. However because of personal circumstances I am no longer able to continue and need to stand down. I have thoroughly  enjoyed working with Barry Bowles and Kerry Jenkins and would endorse their hard work during my time in office.

I am really pleased that the branch today have selected Liz Clements as Labour’s candidate in the by-election. Liz will be a great addition to the Hall Green team with her vast experience of political office and community campaigning. I am confident that she will be someone who is committed to the area and the people of Hall Green and I am pleased to pass on the baton to her.
