Dean Russell was asked to speak alongside West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street at a Young Conservatives event in Birmingham. Dean shared his insights into his own journey coming from a working class family in Birmingham through to standing for Parliament.
"I thoroughly enjoyed speaking alongside Andy Street in my home town of Birmingham. Andy has achieved incredible results for the West Midlands and it is incredible to see so many Young Conservatives active too. There is definitely a huge shift from when I was growing up in the area and proves once again that the Conservatives are not having any issues attracting young people. It was great to meet such an inspiring group of young people and wish them luck in their political careers. Well done to Cllr Alex Yip for organising too. I look forward to speaking again sometime in the future!"
