I grew up in Corby and I am so proud to have been selected by local Labour party members, with such a large margin, to fight to represent my hometown.
I was part of a generation of children whose lives changed for the better because of Labour in government. My family benefited from the minimum wage, tax credits and the full Educational Maintenance Allowance, and I received a number of bursaries and scholarships to help support me through university.
I have spend the last six years working in and around Westminster for Labour MPs and on political campaigns. More recently, I worked on corporate governance policy at the Bank of England. I split my time between my ‘home’ and my day job in London.
I am a long-term trade union member and will continue to fight to ensure our workers’ rights are not watered down as part of Brexit. I am passionate about improving social mobility which has been severely impacted by this Tory Government.
Locally, I have been campaigning on the future of our Urgent Care Centre; plans by Tory- led Northants County Council to close the vast majority of our libraries and children’s centres; and the cuts to our schools that has led to my old school issuing 90 day redundancies notices to every single teacher. We are the fifth richest country in the world by this Tory Government would prefer to give tax breaks to the rich rather than properly fund our public services. I’m driven by this injustice - we need a Labour Government and to do this we must win in Corby and East Northamptonshire.
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
