Eddie Hughes was born in Birmingham and is the son of a bus driver. He went to school in north Birmingham before studying Civil Engineering at the University of Glamorgan.
Eddie’s primary focus is to back Theresa May’s strong and stable leadership as she stands up for Walsall North and delivers a successful Brexit.
Crime is another priority for Eddie, because anti-social behaviour remains problematic and prioritised by the Labour-run Council.
Eddie is currently deputy chief executive of a local charity which provides accommodation for young people and is a trustee of the Walsall Wood Allotment Charity, which helps people in financial need.
Eddie has been a Walsall councillor since 1999, and has held several positions on the council including the decision-making cabinet, chairman of Children’s Services Scrutiny and Audit committees. Eddie served on the West Midlands Police Authority and is Chairman of Walsall Housing Group.
Eddie lives in Walsall, is married and has two grown up children.
