Statement to voters
It’s time now for real action to rebuild our NHS and schools after a decade of cuts, tackle the climate emergency, and create fairer communities for us all.
We’ve had no effective government for the last year but now we can look to the future.
Stroud constituency is a fantastic place to live, where people care passionately about building a better future for their communities and the planet.
This is my eighth General Election for Stroud. In the two years since 2017, I’ve seen just how much austerity has impacted on all your lives, whether that’s underfunded schools and health services, or a desperate shortage of affordable housing, transport and economic opportunities.
There is so much to do, which is why I’ll be working hard to represent you, building a brighter, fairer, greener future for us all.
