Representing ALL communities
I spoke to reporter Colin Pemberton about how, in my four years as a city councillor, I've championed issues important to all communities, from addressing the educational needs of disadvantaged white working class boys to Christmas lights and cross-cultural events. I strongly believe that it is not the role of elected officials of an minority ethnic background to only champion the causes of minority ethnic constituents. I see my role as being a voice for all communities.
