I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Alison Birmingham and I have had the great honour and pleasure of having been selected to stand as your Labour candidate for Crome ward in the forthcoming Norfolk County Council elections.
I’ve lived and raised a family in what is now Crome Ward for 43 years. You may also like to know that I have a lot of experience of Norfolk County Council, having worked there for 25 years both as a social care professional for adults and, more recently, as a full time steward for UNISON, the public services union. I also stood for Labour in the early 1990s as a Norwich City election candidate.
I’m convinced that is now as important as ever for us to hold the Conservative Party to account locally and nationally for their response to the Covid pandemic and for the consequences of their economic and social policies. My wide range of experience, both as a professional in social care and as a trade unionist has made me very aware of the difficulties that people are having to deal with. We need to have a clear focus on jobs, health and social care, and on the education and welfare of children and young people as well as on the many challenges that our communities continue to face.
