Steve Rotherham selected as Labour Party
candidate for Mayor of Liverpool City Region
RESPONDING to the announcement that
Steve Rotherham has been selected to be the Labour Party candidate for Mayor of
Liverpool City Region, UNISON North West Labour Link Officer Lynne Morris said:-
"Steve Rotherham has already shown himself to be a great advocate and
campaigner for the people of Liverpool Walton and we have no doubt he will be an
excellent Mayor for the Liverpool City Region.
We are wholly supportive of
Steve's commitments to tackle inequality, create high wage employment and to
democratic transparency. Steve's plans for Council Housing, better skills and a
greener City Region are the right priorities.
The Labour Party is blessed with
many talented people, and I want to pay tribute to Joe Anderson who remains a
great champion for the people of Liverpool. We're looking forward to working
closely with Steve Rotherham, as we campaign for him to become the City Region's
1st Elected Mayor."
