John is a Birmingham councillor. He has served as Cabinet Member for Housing and Health, leading a new build council housing programme that delivered a record number of new council homes and protecting services for the homeless from Government cuts.
John worked with LHG to launch Birmingham’s Homelessness Manifesto – a plan to tackle the homelessness crisis created by this appalling Tory Government. John is currently working with colleagues to set up a new LHG branch in Birmingham.
Fixing the housing crisis and making sure everyone has a decent affordable home must be the priority for the next Labour Government. As an LHG EC member, John will work with all members to develop policies that make that vision a reality.
