Yeshua Candidate: Colin Rankine is the official Yeshua candidate for Friar Park Ward in Sandwell. 

Words from the candidate (prior to the election):

It would be an honour to serve you as Councillor for Friar Park Ward.  I share a long history with Friar Park; I was born and raised in the area and currently reside and work here.  I therefore know the needs of this community and believe much more can be done to improve our lives.  It is important that as residents, we feel safe, happy and hopeful about our future.  Improving health and boosting aspirations will be at the centre of my plans if elected.


We live in a fast-paced, changing society and I believe the residents of Friar Park deserve the same opportunities that can be found in other Wards.  


If you vote for me, during this election, then together, we can make Friar Park the heart of Sandwell.  There is a lot of talent amongst us and I want to help to create more opportunities for all ages - from the very young, to the elderly.


As a practicing Christian, the prayer for Friar Park is 2 Chronicles 7:14.
