Statement to voters
Michal Chantkowski, 32, has lived in Sunderland for 4 years (and over 10 years in the region). He works as a manager at a local charity, supporting Black and Minority ethnic Communities to integrate and contribute to the local area.
Michal is the only Polish-born candidate standing in this national election.
Michal pledged to make protecting local A&E services, improving the availability of quality education in the local area, and securing a referendum on terms of exiting the EU a priority for their campaign and, if elected, his work as an MP.
● I have decided to stand as I am concerned that British values and traditions such as openness, tolerance and fairness are in danger while mainstream political parties lack a long-term vision for the country. Since 2009, I have worked and volunteered in Sunderland and seen it suffering under Labour, who take our area for granted and the Tories, who only care about those who in power
● If elected:
-I will stand firmly against a hard Brexit, for which there is no democratic mandate
-I will oppose the undemocratic and top-down “sustainability” and transformation plans (cuts to local NHS services), which will cause suffering and cost money in the long term
-Prioritise green manufacturing, bridging a proud industrial past with a new, green future
I promise to attend at least 75% of all parliamentary sessions and if not, to donate 50% of my salary to local charities.
