Phil DaviesLeader of Wirral Council
When it comes to vitally important matters like jobs, housing and schools Joe has a record of delivery which is second to none. I’ve worked along side him as part of the City Region Combined Authority and I know with Joe as City Region Mayor he can achieve great things for Wirral and the whole of the City Region. I’m delighted to give my endorsement to Joe.
John KellyCouncillor for Sefton MBC
Young people deserve the best possible start to their working life. It’s their economic success which will drive the future prosperity of our City Region. I believe that every young person should be able to access a proper apprenticeship opportunity if they want one. Only Joe Anderson is promising to really invest in apprenticeships and that’s why I support Joe’s campaign for Metro Mayor.
Carla ThomasCounillor at Sefton MBC
Only Joe is making a real commitment to providing an accessible and safe public transport system across our City Region. Whether it’s increasing disability access on trains and buses, providing buses that people feel safe on at night or building new train stations at places like Maghull North, Joe has demonstrated that he understands the changes needed to give us a first class public transport network.
Mike O’BrienChair of Bootle CLP
Our City Region is one of the sporting capitals of the country. Whether it golf or horse racing, rugby league or football, sport is at the heart of our City Region. Bringing the Commonwealth Games here is a brilliant idea not just in terms of sport but also because of the economic benefits it will bring. It’s because of great ideas like this that I’m supporting Joe’s campaign of be our Metro Mayor.
Paulette LappinCabinet Member for Regulatory, Compliance and Corporate Services Sefton MBC
I’m supporting Joe to be our first Metro Mayor candidate because I believe in his vision for sustainable energy in the City Region. It’s ridiculous that local families are having to pay over the top energy costs for expensive, unsustainable power when we have such wonderful sources of wind and tidal power on our doorstep.
Trish HardyCabinet Member for Communities and Housing Sefton MBC
I’m supporting Joe because he has a proven commitment to promoting the cause of women within both the Labour Party and politics in general. I know that this is more than just gesture politics to Joe. He works hard to create an environment in which women can thrive and achieve. As our candidate for Metro Mayor he would put the needs of women right at the heart of local politics.
Ian MaherLeader of Sefton MBC
Joe and I have worked together for the past five years in making devolution for our City Region a reality. Joe Anderson has led the devolution process from the start. Joe has always believed that a Metro Mayor would benefit our area. I believe it is vital that Labour’s candidate must have a real background of working alongside local councillors and have the vision to lead from the front for the whole of our City Region. Joe Anderson is that person.
I urge you to give your support to Joe Anderson.
Peter Dowd MPMember of Parliament for Bootle
I have worked with Joe for almost 20 years on various issues that have affected our whole City Region not just Liverpool. I can think of no other person who has given more at the grass roots day in day out for two decades. Joe has been a driving force in achieving the devolution deal for the City Region. So now it’s time to let Joe use his drive, energy and determination for the benefit of our City Region, so that’s why I’m right behind Joe to be Labour’s candidate for Metro Mayor.
