I am privileged and honoured to be selected as the Labour Candidate for this wonderful constituency.
This has been described as a once in a lifetime election during some challenging times, where many people understandably have lost trust and respect for today's politicians, so it's time for change.
I am standing as I, like many, are fed-up with the years of Tory austerity and I cannot stand-by and allow to continue. I cannot let all those who work for our Public Services work in continuous under resourced conditions and I cannot let other families suffer from continual funding cuts to our vital services.
I cannot stand-by and see our communities divided, insisting each other are to blame for where we find ourselves as a society, when that blame is not around us, but above us.
I will be a candidate who is open, honest and available to all, commit myself to my community at a local level and hope to be their voice nationally.
I may not be the most experienced in the world of politics, but I know I have the experiences of life that will allow me the opportunity to improve society based upon the values of Labour
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
