I have met some great people that need help and seek change. My 173 votes were for me; Desmond Jaddoo the individual with no confusion over a party, which is a beginning, after all its more than I started, there is only one direction and that is forward.
Many asked why Ladywood, as I am well known in Aston, Lozells, Perry Barr, Handsworth & Winson Green and its a simple answer, there is a need in Ladywood.
Over the coming months I look forward including the people of Ladywood in my work as an activist and importantly, ensuring that they are aware of how to hold their Local Councillors to account.
In the meantime I want to tank all the well wishers and the words of encouragement and be assured, I am aware of one thing that I am constantly reminded of by my big soul sister " The race is not for the swift,bu those who can endureth".
Anyway time to put the boots back on.
