Dear friends,

 

You can read my statement following news of Sir Albert Bore’s decision to step down as Leader of Birmingham City Council here below:


“Albert is quite simply one of Brum’s all time greats.”

“He’s been a visionary, a fighter, an organiser, a town hall legend and what has never left him is a burning passion for social justice.”

“His vision has helped transform our city and he steps down having delivered falling unemployment, new businesses opening their doors, investors pouring in and new homes being built.”

“He is Birmingham, and Labour, at it’s best.”

 

ENDS
