Statement to voters
As a local councillor for over 10 years, I have campaigned - and won - with local people on issues ranging from broadband to protecting green spaces, transport to health. Having worked closely with Steve Webb I know what a difference a strong local MP can make. With children at local schools I think it's time we again have an MP who stands up for us in Westminster against education cuts, instead of one who has never voted against his party’s line.
Committed NHS staff are overstretched and under-resourced. Our plans would deliver an extra £26m a year to hospitals, surgeries and care services here in South Gloucestershire. We need houses people can afford to live in, along with the transport improvements to avoid gridlock, but I will always fight concreting over our countryside simply to line developers’ pockets.
Having worked in small businesses, fighting for jobs will be a top priority for me as your MP, including making sure that the British people - not politicians - have the final say on any Brexit deal.
I love this area and I want to be your MP so that we once again have a powerful and effective voice in Westminster, delivering for local people.
