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.
In order to enjoy a successful future the North East of England desperately needs a powerful voice speaking and campaigning on behalf of the whole region on the national stage. If Kim were to be selected I am confident she would be an excellent spokesperson and representative for all the Great North region, as we compete for our fair share of government support.
