Birmingham Local Elections 2022 - Liberal Democrat Manifesto

April 21, 2022 7:00 PM
By Lee Dargue

Listening, localism, and liberalism - a new start for Birmingham.

Liberal Democrats in Birmingham today launched their manifesto for the May elections in Birmingham city, and Sutton Coldfield Parish, with a challenge to the stale, tired politics of Labour vs Conservative parties.

Key policies for Liberal Democrats in this election manifesto include:

Speaking on the manifesto, Cllr Jon Hunt, group leader for the Lib Dems on Birmingham Council, said:

"People across the city are crying out for change, demanding a new direction for their community. Lib Dems have been demanding better and achieving much from opposition. We need more Lib Dems elected for positive change in Birmingham.

"Birmingham city ward and Sutton Coldfield Parish ward residents and businesses are fed up with a Conservative government that's given up caring, and a Birmingham Labour-run council that has long stopped listening.

"Liberal Democrats agree with residents that our local areas need more power, more investment, and more care. As we recover from the pandemic, we need investment across our communities, not just spent in one area on vanity projects.

"I'm very proud of this manifesto, and even prouder of the work across our city by hard-working Lib Dems. We want to tackle the cost-of-living crisis, fight against climate change for a secure future, and ensure people finally get a genuine say in their own communities.

"The Conservative party has shown that it can't lead, and Birmingham Labour doesn't listen. People want change, people want a brighter future, and that's what can be had by voting Lib Dem on May 5."
