It goes without saying that I am absolutely delighted that Party members have put their faith in me to represent them in the next General Election. I was born and raised here, I was schooled at a local comprehensive and Southend is in my blood. My family on both sides have been here for generations. I love our town, I appreciate its beauty and I understand its needs. I honestly would not want to represent anywhere other than Southend.
Constituents already know me as the manager of a small business and a highly active local campaigner. This election will inevitably be one of the most important in a lifetime. A transformative Labour Government would kickstart a green industrial revolution, and create an economy that works for the many.
If elected, I will be a strong national voice for all of us. Together, we can be the positive change that our town needs and that we all deserve.
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
