Cllr Ann Holtom has been selected as the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Erdington by members of Erdington & Sutton Coldfield Liberal Democrats.
Speaking at her selection meeting Ann highlighted her four key priorities for a better Erdington.
1. Improvements in public transport and the urgent need for a new railway station on Castle Vale.
2. Protect jobs in manufacturing industries especially at Jaguar in Castle Bromwich which is threatened with closure.
3. Provide hope for a lost generation with the development of jobs and imaginative programmes to provide paid work experience opportunities for 18-25 year olds.
4. Campaign for a better deal for pensioners who have seen their standard of living drop in the last 10 years.
Ann is looking forward to a positive campaign and to increase the Lib Dem share of the vote.
