Your Conservative City Mayoral Candidate 2nd May 2019


“The welfare, progress and prosperity of Leicester is hugely important to me and my family. Our roots with my home city go back to the late 1930s, it will always be the city I call home. Leicester has shaped me, it gave me the confidence to have ambition and drive. My family have been part of the business community and local community activities since the early fifties, they like me care about Leicester City. I am standing as a Mayoral candidate because I believe this City has for far too long been let down and very badly served. The people of Leicester deserve much better, it is time for a change”.

Baroness Sandip Verma
