Catherine Fookes

Personal Statement

I have lived in Monmouth constituency for over 20 years - both the fantastic people and the beauty of the place brought me here. It's a wonderful area to bring up my two children. I've been involved in the community ever since I moved here, most recently as a County Councillor and Cabinet Member for Equalities at Monmouthshire County Council.

As Chief Executive of a charity campaigning for a fairer Wales, I'm proud to have doubled our funding and grown our impact in recent years, winning important campaigns as well as two National awards.

Monmouth's residents are some of the kindest and fairest that I have known but they do not have a government in Westminster who treats them fairly. Monmouth needs an MP who is committed to strengthening the economy to fix the chaos caused by the Tories over the past 13 years, an MP who can make Monmouth fairer, bringing funding to the area to regenerate our high streets and invest in public services, as well as an MP who will take the climate emergency seriously.

Together, it’s time to build a stronger, fairer, greener Monmouth Constituency.

I'd love to answer any questions you may have or please do get in touch to help us win Monmouth for Labour.
