Labour is the only party who can deliver real change for Lichfield and Burntwood residents, their parliamentary candidate Chris Worsey has claimed.
The digital entrepreneur revealed he and his team have already had thousands of conversations with local voters ahead of the general election on May 7.
The 31-year-old Sandwell councillor also set out why the constituency of Lichfield and Burntwood matters to him.
Mr Worsey said: “I have committed 20 months of my life to this seat, working rigorously since I was selected to fight this election back in January 2014. My team and I have knocked on thousands of doors.
“We are going for the win on May 7.
“I grew up just three miles outside of Lichfield in Great Wyrley – I represented Lichfield Cricket Club all across the district and got to know the area really well.”
The Labour candidate also explained what he believes are the main differences between his party and the Conservatives.
He said: “4,123 people live in fuel poverty here in Lichfield, over 800 families use the local food bank and under the Tories our national heath service is going backwards.
“I still believe that Labour is the best way to get social justice through the political system. All of the major social advancements in this country have been introduced by Labour such as the introduction of the NHS, employment protection and equality law.”
