Time to introduce Raaj Shamji our candidate for the election on 12th December. Raaj has strong connections to the area, he was a student at the old Birmingham City University, which was at Perry Barr. Time has moved on and he now works for his old university as part of its support services team as a senior development manager at its new location in the city. He lives in Walsall and has many relatives and friends in North Birmingham. He was active in student politics and later worked for 'Vote Leave' as a volunteer; we should remember that Perry Barr voted to leave the EU in 2016.
