Hello! Two days ago, I was selected to stand as the prospective Conservative candidate in the ward of Ladywood in Birmingham. I thought it might be a good idea to start a blog to track my thoughts, progress and so on until election day in May.

Since I got the official endorsement, I've been spending my time pouring over maps of the ward, reading ward development plans and coming up with policies and a campaign plan. I've lived in the ward for a few years now (and the city nearly all my life!), and I know that my own experiences, and the experiences of others I know in the area, will be a great help.

I'm really looking forward to the challenge. Watch this space!

Good to see some young blood taking up politics, there seems to be a void of 40 to 50 somthings voiceing how our town is run. I hope Peter you will be able to take the opions of our generation and give them a voice. and push issues that are important to all of us.

It's excellent that the Conservative Party is broadening its appeal to include areas like Ladywood. Labour have taken them for granted for too long and I'm certain you'll do well.

Good luck!
