Manifesto For Middlesbrough launch Launching My Manifesto For Middlesbrough
April 10, 2019

Nearly 100 people of all backgrounds and political beliefs attended the launch of my Manifesto For Middlesbrough in the beautiful Trinity Centre in North Ormesby.

I announced how, if I’m elected mayor on May 2nd, I’ll actively challenge and set targets for Cleveland Police.

That I’ll introduce by-laws against spitting, peeing and littering the streets.

I’ll target the building of 1,000 new social housing homes and take actions towards attracting 4,000 new people to live in the centre of Middlesbrough.

I will introduce a new plan to protect our historic buildings.

Pupils who achieve 100% school attendance over an academic year will be rewarded with free access to council-run leisure facilities.

As part of moves to create healthier communities, I’ll actively promote sport and activities in the town.

And I’ll insist that the council always try to buy local and award contracts to local firms – while I will push South Tees Health and the university to do the same.

I’ll report more about the manifesto highlights later but do let me know what you think.
