Katie Burgess has been selected as the Conservative’s candidate in the upcoming Liverpool City Mayoral elections.
The 34-year-old businesswoman has a strong political background as Chairman of Bootle’s Conservation Association, Officer for the City of Liverpool Conservatives and as a council candidate for Liverpool in 2019.
Kate, who is a big Liverpool FC fan and keen photographer, said the city needs a change, which she believes only a Conservative mayor working with the Government can bring about.
She said: “As a proud Liverpolitan, who has been born and bred here, I believe in this city and its future and have invested in it personally through business and development, for the whole 18 years of my working life.
“From my personal and professional experience in our local tourism, hospitality and leisure sectors, as well as property, I can confidently strive for improvement, affluence and success for all.
"In the wake of the Covid pandemic, we have an opportunity to see our city thrive, to kick-start the local economy, encourage outside investment, business and industry while preserving our green spaces, culture and history."
“Our Conservative government has already proven their belief in the city, choosing it to pilot their Covid schemes from the mass testing to the new crowd safety trial.
“A Conservative voice at the helm is needed to be heard in Westminster, to command the best from the government and work with them for the city and for the people who live and work in it.
“Creating secure jobs and skilled workers, high quality housing, and a freeze on Council Tax. Reducing crime, tackling rough sleeping and homelessness and encouraging independence through education, enterprise and employment, make for my vision for Liverpool.”
