Help elect Anna Rothery as the first Black Woman to lead a major UK city.
As Anna said:
As a working-class woman brought up in Toxteth, I’ve never been afraid to speak truth to power. I’ve never compromised on my principles and I’ve always followed my own path, so after the year Liverpool has had with the pandemic and politics I decided to stand for Liverpool Mayor.
Liverpool is a wonderfully diverse place to live and I am proud of our reputation for an inclusive vibrant city, I would be humbled to be first Black Woman Mayor in our city and the UK, but I know it’s not going to be an easy task. Liverpool has been battered by more than a decade of Tory Austerity and now with the impact of Covid 19.
Liverpool was the first area of England to be placed in the very high level of coronavirus restrictions, whilst the Government dithered and delayed, changed the rules frequently without warning and left both our people and industries at risk with their repeated failures to put people and society over profits for their mates.
From the huge increase in food bank use, to the lack of support for the self employed, to businesses suffering from the impact of closure to the all important crisis in our NHS - our city needs help to cope with the fall out and I want to be at the heart of helping us recover."
Anna's campaign has focused on getting in touch with as many members as possible and getting up and running. Our campaign hasn't been worked on over many years but has been in response to the grassroots calls for Anna to stand.
We don't have any big business financial backers so will be reliant on our grassroots support to take the next steps in our campaign!
We aim to raise money to help reach every member with Anna's socialist campaign message. To ensure Liverpool is run for the many, transparently and accountable to our local community.
Anna is a Cllr in Princess Park ward and the current lord Mayor, she is a working class woman brought up in Toxteth and is committed to running a campaign that is inclusive and honest, on a socialist manifesto of putting people first and ensuring our party is accountable to the people of Liverpool.
We don't have long left - ballots open on the 17th February.
Please help with a donation if you can and by sharing this post our campaign will be run with your donations.
