Let's make the North East the home of real opportunity
As North East Mayor I will lead the fight to end child poverty, create good jobs and ensure we lead the UK once again in arts, culture and sport.
The North East of England desperately needs a powerful voice speaking and campaigning on behalf of the whole region on the national stage. I am confident Kim would be an excellent spokesperson and representative for all the Great North region, as we compete for our fair share of government support.
Sir Brendan Foster CBE
I know what matters most.
And I've delivered.
I grew up in the North East, it's what made me who I am, and as Police Commissioner I lead one of our most important public services. My mission is to tackle social injustice wherever I find it.
