Andy Street: Compassionate towards minority growth in West Midlands

The veteran boss of John Lewis, Andy Street CBE stepped down from running the department chain after 30 years, when he was selected as a candidate by Conservative party, for West Midlands Mayoral election, to be held on 4 May 2017. In a readership survey by Trinity Mirror, it showed that Tory's Andy Street and Labour’s Sion Simon MEP each look set to get 33% of first preference votes, though one has to secure more than 50% votes to win. The poll also predicts that Simon may get ahead of Andy in the long run, but one is hopeful that the current state of Labour party may act on his favour. “The only poll that matters is on election day,” he told Asian Voice. “I got this critical opportunity to serve West Midlands, and I decided I will not turn my back on it.”
