Our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate Adam Freeman
I am very happy to introduce myself as your Parliamentary candidate for South Staffordshire in this year’s election. Two year’s ago I had the honour of standing for this seat for the first time, touring the Constituency, listening to the views and concerns of residents in the many villages and how I intended to bring. This campaign saw the Labour Party gain its best result here in sixteen year’s and cemented the party as the closest challenge to the Conservatives. This year I want to go one better and not only get our best result in this constituency ever but speak to more local people, distribute more leaflets and bring the transformative socialist policies to even more people.
I was born in Perton, South Staffordshire and have lived here my whole life. I am not seeking any personal gain for myself and see entering parliament at the age of 27 as a fantastic opportunity for all members of the South Staffordshire electorate to get a MP who will work hard to represent your views and is passionate about increasing youth involvement in local and national politics. My five year term as this Constituency’s Secretary and Campaign Co-Ordinator puts me in a strong position to understand not only the needs of Labour Members but crucially how to campaign and win election’s locally.
In May I was elected onto Pattingham and Patshull Parish Council, one of the first Labour Party member’s to hold a position on the Council. I have been spending the last few months gaining a valuable understanding what is required of someone who hold’s public office, how to engage with residents and the steps towards supporting them and helping them find a solution to their concerns.
I led the local campaign against school cuts, rail fares and supporting the National Health Service in our constituency, connecting with local members and the wider public in Perton, Wombourne and Cheslyn Hay, just to name a few. I am passionate about taking on the Conservatives in this election, and bringing Socialism and the values of the Labour Party to the people of South Staffordshire.
