THE GREEN Party have selected their candidate for the West Midlands Mayoral Election.
Siobhan Harper-Nunes will be standing in May’s election and has vowed to give communities a voice if she comes out on top.
She has worked both in the public and third sector raising money and working with a raft of organisations, including the Institute of Social Enterprise and National Council of Voluntary Organisations.
In 2007 she founded Shakti Women, an organisation that supports women in both personal and professional development through coaching and training.
She is also currently vice-chair of Birmingham Race Impact Group, a group working for many years to promote racial justice in Birmingham.
Siobhan said: “Too many places in the West Midlands are still underfunded and left behind, and this has barely changed over the past seven years.
“The West Midlands Combined Authority is out of touch and doesn’t look like or represent us. People still don’t know what it is and what it does. I want to give communities a stronger voice and make sure the Combined Authority works for and listens to us.”
“Action on the climate is too little and too late. We need action now, not future promises.”
