16 February 2017

On Thursday 4 May 2017 there is an election for the new role of mayor for the West Midlands Combined Authority. This covers the whole of the Black Country, Birmingham, Coventry and Solihull.

On Wednesday evening, 15 February, James Burn visited Green party members and supporters in Wolverhampton. The meeting at Wild Bytes cafe, Darlington Street, was one of a wide range of meetings that James is holding with people right across the region.

James Burn is the mayoral candidate for the Green Party - he is also leader of the opposition on Solihull Council, one of ten councillors in Solihull, the third largest group of Green councillors in the country.

James spoke in detail about the West Midlands Combined Authority, the new role of Mayor and about some of his experiences of fighting and winning elections in Solihull. 

Green Party campaigner, Clive Wood, said: "It was inspiring to hear about all the campaigning James is involved in - and to meet so many new members and supporters who are keen to get involved and make a difference locally."
