Statement to voters
Just like in the 1980s, Liverpool has borne the brunt of the harshest Tory cuts. Since 2010, Conservative governments have cut more than 64% of Liverpool City Council's funding. Our Labour-run Council has found innovative ways to stave off Tory attacks without closing any libraries or children's centres but it may struggle to survive another Tory onslaught.
If re-elected, I will continue to be a powerful advocate for our City, working with Liverpool's Labour-run Counil and Mayor to demand a fair settlement for Liverpool's public services. No longer will Liverpool have to face ideological cuts from a Tory government determined to leave our great city behind.
Please re-elect me on 8th June to allow me to keep fighting for a Fair Deal for Liverpool in Parliament.
