2014 Campaign Launch

Our candidate for Hall Green in the 2014 local elections, Kerry Jenkins, was invited to speak at the 2014 Campaign launch held last week. Her key messages were to increase participation by all sections of the community and the need for local representation. She also took the opportunity to thank the many Labour activists and supporters who have assisted in the campaign for a #labourgain in Hall Green.

Labour campaign to ‘freeze that bill’

Under Ed Miliband your gas and electricity bills will be frozen until 2017. Saving 27 million households and 2.4 million businesses money. Ed shares why he’d put the interests of consumers before energy companies: http://bit.ly/162o0U7

Kerry Jenkins, Hall Green’s Labour Candidate for 2014 said:

“Under David Cameron, Britain’s families are facing a cost of living crisis. Prices have risen faster than wages in 38 of the 39 months that David Cameron has been in Downing Street and energy bills have gone up by almost £300. David Cameron only stands up for the privileged few. His failure to tackle rip-off bills has meant that many people in Hall Green are struggling to pay their bills.

“Ed Miliband says Labour will freeze prices until the start of 2017 if Labour wins the next election. This will save a typical household £120 a year and this will be a huge help for many who are facing a cost of living crisis. I welcome this pledge but the reality is that people round here need help now so I’m calling on David Cameron to freeze our bills now.”

“For that to happen, we need as many people as possible to support this campaign, sign the petition and get involved. We will be launching this campaign on Saturday 9th November and you can visit us outside the Co-Op on the Stratford Road, B28 8AS between 10 and 12.”

We were blessed with lovely weather and enthusiastic support from colleagues in neighbouring Moseley and Kings Heath .

We met many residents who shared with us their concerns and worries. We were able to quickly identify the fact they were upset at the lack of maintenance to pavements over the last five years particularly with regard to tree root problems damaging pavements and pathways and resulting in real concerns about elderly and infirm people using the paths. One resident told us that she had already tripped and fallen but fortunately this accident had not resulted in a serious injury.

Luckily enough, our Hall Green Labour Councillors Barry Bowles and Sam Burden were out campaigning with us and they were able to offer reassurance and effective action. We will be contacting AMEY, the Council’s maintenance company for swift action to rectify this problem.

We were also lucky to meet new residents who were loving their new neighbourhood and we weere able to provide information that they requested regarding getting registered to vote. We also got lots of positive feedback from residents glad that we were out campaigning and informing them about local issues and problems.

We will be out on the streets of Hall Green on a regular basis so do look out for us and in the meantime, if you have any issues or concerns then please do let us know.
