“I am deeply honoured and humbled to be selected as the Labour Party candidate for the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor.
“I am extremely grateful to the thousands of Party members who have chosen to place their trust in me and I am determined not to let them down.
“I have travelled the length and breadth of our City Region and have spoken with people in every borough, from all walks of life, who share the same ambition as me - to build a City Region that utilises the energy, the talents, the ideas and the hopes of all our people, to transform the present and begin to shape its future, creating a more vibrant, more prosperous area.
“As Metro Mayor, I will put social justice at the heart of my administration; something which I've been passionate about all of my political career. I'll stand up for ordinary people and be a real champion for Merseyside and Halton on the national and international stage.
“Devolution presents us with a unique opportunity to make decisions locally, in the interests of local people, to ensure each person within our 6 districts has the best chance in life.”
