Councillor Carl Rice
All about me
I have been a City Councillor since 1987. I stood for election all those years ago because I wanted to bring about changes to the way Council services were run. All too often they appear to be based on the needs and wishes of politicians and staff rather than the people we are supposed to serve.
After 29 years on the Council I remain committed to ensuring all services are based on the needs and priorities of the people of North Edgbaston, whom I have the honour and privilege of representing. For all those who might think that after 29 years as a Councillor I may have lost my commitment and enthusiasm, I would say this - I still get angry at injustice and inequality and still despise waste and inefficiency. And above all I still work hard on behalf of the people of Birmingham.
Please contact me if I can be of help or assistance.

How to Contact Me
You can visit me at the advice surgeries below or contact me by telephone or email.
Advice surgeries are where you are able to visit your local councillors with any issues or concerns that you have.
Councillors will always try to attend their advice surgeries; however there may be times, when an advice surgery has to be cancelled or changed at short notice. There is no legal requirement for Councillors to keep the advice surgery open for the full time.
