100 days of action - Star letter
Labour has been in power in Sheffield for just over 100 days.
Below is the text of a letter I sent to the Star
100 Days of Action
Sheffield City Council has been a whirlwind of activity since the LibDems were booted out by the people of Sheffield just over 100 days ago.
In that time, Labour has restored funding for PCSOs, repaired some of the ConDem cuts to SureStart and stopped the LibDems decision to create an unfair two-tier system in adult social care.
We have also launched one of England’s largest apprenticeship schemes to make sure young people are given the opportunities they need. We are standing up for Sheffield and protecting frontline services as much as possible.
All of these improvements were opposed by the LibDems, who need to think carefully about why they lost, because just sniping from the sidelines and sticking up for the Tories doesn’t help anyone.
Of course, there’s a lot more work to do to make Sheffield as good as it can be, but Labour’s new approach is making Sheffield a better place to live, learn and work. This is just the start.

A New Politics
As a local ward Councillor and community activist giving people a voice is one of my top priorities. I want everyone to feel they have a stake in our society - politics is central to that.
