Julie Fitzpatrick, the Labour Party’s newest candidate on the block in Bloxwich, is digging for victory in this week’s Bloxwich East by-election, which takes place on Thursday 27 October.
And Julie, who says she wants to stand up for the local community against Tory-LibDem cuts, is hoping to help overturn the established balance of power in Bloxwich East by pipping former Conservative councillor Les Beeley in particular at the post, in a battle for the seat vacated by the late Bill Tweddle, another long-serving Tory, who passed away earlier this year.
Julie, who has lived in Victoria Avenue, Bloxwich, for eleven years, has a good track record of working enthusiastically in the community, helping raise funds for St. Giles Walsall Hospice through the WS3 Friends of Walsall Hospice Group, and is also an active member of Bloxwich Carnival Committee as well as a member of St. Peter’s Church.
Julie Fitzpatrick said “It’s time for change in Bloxwich East. Vote for the candidate who will help you solve local issues that affect you. Vote for the candidate who has worked voluntarily in your area – not just at election time in order to get your vote. Vote for me. Vote for change.”
Polling takes place between 7am-10pm at Bloxwich C E J M I School, High St; Lower Farm Primary School, Bakewell Close; Little Bloxwich CE Primary, Grenfell Road; St. Peters R.C. Church Hall, Harrison St; Green Rock Primary School, Mersey Road, Blakenall Heath and Valley Nursery School, Blakenall Heath.
