Labour’s 2017 General Election candidate in Lichfield and Burntwood says he won’t overlook key local issues.
Chris Worsey will return to contest the seat two years after losing out to Conservative rival Michael Fabricant.
The founder of a tech start-up business offering careers advice, is also a councillor in Great Barr.
But he insists local issues around health will be at the heart of his campaign.
“I’m delighted to be Lichfield’s parliamentary candidate again for 2017,” he said. “We built a fantastic team in 2015 and I can’t wait to start campaigning again.
“There are big issues at stake in Lichfield and Burntwood. From the future of Samuel Johnson Hospital to the axed Burntwood Health Centre, our health services are under pressure. I pledge to always fight for our local health services.”
Mr Worsey said the challenges facing the housing market in Lichfield and Burntwood would also be central to his focus.
“I want to continue my campaign for decent and affordable homes,” he added. ”Labour will work to provide good quality affordable homes for the many, not concrete over the Green Belt with expensive homes for the few.”
