CONSERVATIVE Sajid Javid vowed to ‘transform Bromsgrove into a district of opportunity’ if he is re-elected on December 12.
Mr Javid spoke as he officially launched his general election campaign on Friday in Upton Warren before he headed to Bromsgrove High Street and Rubery where he met business owners.
He said: “This is why I’m cultivating a strong local economy by backing small businesses and the residents behind them.
“It’s why I’m making sure every one of my constituents has the chance to find a job they love by attracting new employers to our area, and by organising Bromsgrove’s biggest Jobs Fair.
“It’s why I’m investing into our local public services by putting hundreds more police officers on our streets, giving the NHS the biggest cash boost in its history and levelling up funding for schools in Worcestershire by £17.7million next year alone.”
He also cited tackling traffic congestion and prioritising rail and road improvements, including the A38, saying “and it’s why I want to connect every corner of our constituency by kicking off an infrastructure revolution. That means rolling out gigabit broadband in our rural areas, tackling traffic congestion and prioritising rail & road improvements"
He said never in his lifetime had there been a general election where the stakes had been higher for the future of the community or the country.
He said: “Over the past nine years, I’ve had the opportunity to stand up for one of the most hardworking, kind-hearted communities that our country has to offer.
“It’s been the greatest privilege of my career.”
He added a Conservative majority government would ‘get Brexit done’ with the deal which Prime Minister Boris Johnson had negotiated and then work on issues to create a stronger, better future for both Bromsgrove and Britain.
Sajid Javid concluded his remarks by stating:
“On December 12th, you have a choice. A vote for Corbyn or the Lib Dems is a vote for another hung Parliament, plagued by the same infighting, confusion and indecision - ready to waste the next three months just like its wasted the last three years.
“Or, you can vote for a Conservative majority government that’s going to Get Brexit Done, pass the Great New Deal that the Prime Minister has already negotiated with the EU and get on with working on the issues that will create a stronger, better future for Bromsgrove – and for Britain.
