It’s Charles Robinson for Blythe
Lib Dems select local school governor Charles Robinson as our candidate in the March 1st by-election
Long-term local resident, school governor and former Parish Councillor Charles Robinson has been selected as the Lib Dem candidate for the Blythe by-election on March the 1st.
Charles is hoping to continue serving his local community as a hard-working Lib Dem councillor, following in the footsteps of the popular, frequently re-elected Lib Dem councillors serving other wards and to provide another voice in opposition to the Tory-led council’s constant cuts.
Reacting to his selection, he said, “It’s an honour to be selected for the ward I have called home since 2001. I’m looking to build on my work as the vice-chair of Dickens Heath Primary School’s governors, where I have been heavily involved in the recent development of the specialist Additional Resource Centre for children with additional needs (the first of its kind in Solihull borough).
“As a former member of the Hockley Heath, Cheswick Green, Dickens Heath and Tidbury Green Parish Council, I have a wealth of community knowledge which I can use to make a positive difference to the ward.
“Professionally, I am an Environmental Scientist and a Chartered Town Planner, so I understand the challenges facing the ward due to the proposed housing developments and would bring my experience to bear to ensure the best possible solution for the ward.
“Having watched my children grow up in Blythe, I have a comprehensive understanding of the issues facing both young people and parents. Being a keen walker and cyclist, I also fully understand the need to protect our green spaces and environment for future generations.
“If you are fed up with the constant under-funding and cuts to services, vote for me.
“I’ll stand up and fight for our schools, the police, NHS & Social Care to have the resources they require to do their jobs effectively and safely, rather than toeing the central government line.”
