With the local elections in full swing, my colleague Mohammed Ishtiaq is campaigning hard to retain his council seat in Sparkbrook. He is a really hardworking and effective councillor, and is very well known across the ward. We are getting a very good response to our campaign as many people have seen just how much Ishtiaq has done for the area since he was first elected.
The Balsall Heath hustings meeting takes place tonight, with all election candidates invited. The meeting is at the Balsall Heath Church Centre on Edward Road. There is a women-only session at 6pm, and a session open to all from 7pm.
