Over the past 20 months my team and I have spoken to thousands of residents and they have made it clear they want change.

I want to see a recovery that makes people here in Dudley feel better – one that raises the minimum wage and bans exploitative zero hour contracts – and I want to see a brighter future for the next generation by making sure that education, training and jobs are a priority.

I want to make sure that our public services are valued and that we keep our NHS safe by investing in thousands of new doctors and nurses.
