Ann was born in Pype Hayes, grew up in Pype Hayes and Castle Vale and currently lives in Pype Hayes. She is a genuine local Tyburn councillor. Neither the Labour nor the Tory candidate for the election on 1 May live in Tyburn Ward.
Ann is backed by local residents as having a proven track record which counts for everything. One stated: "For years the only councillor who's ever done anything in our community is Ann. Others have tried taking credit but we all know it's been Ann who has done all the hard work. We'd be mad to vote for other candidates who don't have a record of doing any work for our community. We're voting for Ann Holtom."
