About Me

I have been a labour councillor with Sandwell Council since 1991, proudly representing the people living in the Soho and Vicotria in Smethwick.  I would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me over the years.

In December 2009 I was elected as the Leader of Sandwell Council.

As well as my work as Leader and Local Councillor I am a nurse, working for the National Health Service, caring for people with mental health problems.

I always am very keen to hear the views of people who use the services offered by the Council.   I am currently testing new ways of making my views and those of service users more accessible, such as this blog.  If you wish to contact me in the meantime you can use the form provided in the ‘Contact Me’ section of my website or by emailing me at cooperd14@sky.com
