Labour Councillor Defects to Liberal Democrats

Councillor Kerrie Miles of Batchley and Brockhill ward has today announced her defection from the Labour Party to the Liberal Democrats.

Announcing the decision, Cllr Miles said,

I am delighted to announce my affiliation with the Liberal Democrats. I believe that, given the current state of affairs both locally and nationally, the only way to bring about genuine change and help people is to align with a party that offers real solutions, and that party is the Liberal Democrats. 

“Now more than ever, it's crucial to have an economy that is fair, prosperous, and innovative, promoting both opportunity and well-being. Access to good public services and a robust social safety net is vital, as is a sustainable and flourishing environment with equitable access to nature for all. The Liberal Democrats are the only party that is committed to delivering these ideals. After enduring 13 years of national Conservative rule and five years of Conservative rule locally, it's time to take control and steer our town and country in the right direction. 

“My aspiration is to make Batchley and Brockhill the best it can be. Despite Conservatives and Labour holding power in the past, the promised improvements failed to materialise. My goal is to improve the lives of the locals and bring back a sense of community that we've lost over the years. That is why I've joined the Liberal Democrats. “

Chair of Redditch Liberal Democrats, Andy Thompson added, 

“I am delighted to welcome Councillor Kerrie Miles to the Liberal Democrats. She is a true community champion and a great fit for a political party which prides itself on working hard for its communities. We are thrilled to have a Liberal Democrat representative on Redditch Borough Council and look forward to being a voice for residents across the borough, fighting to make Redditch a better place to live and work.”
