In May 2017 Steve Rotheram was elected to become the first ever Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region. And while this is quite a milestone, we were excited by his manifesto that the Liverpool City Region become more ambitious, fair, green, and a digitally connected. Steve has already convened Liverpool’s first Digital Summit and we’re excited to learn more about Steve’s vision for the future of Liverpool and progress thus far.
Previously, Steve has served Liverpool in many ways: Liverpool City Councillor, Lord Mayor of Liverpool, MP, bricklayer and young entrepreneur. He has studied at both LJMU and Hope University. Last year, LBC Radio named Steve to its list of “Top 100 Influential Figures on the Left”. In 2011, his speech on the Hillsborough disaster was recognised as “Parliamentary Speech of the Year”. In 2012, Steve was the chief organiser of the Justice Collective single that went on to become the Christmas number one. Steve sang on the single alongside lesser-known artists such as Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Holly Johnson and Mel C.
