Statement to voters
As a resident and committed Green Party member, I am keen to stand in the General Election 2017 and offer a choice to people in Birkenhead. Having stood in local elections previously and being actively involved in local activities such as resident surveys, I know what matters to people in Birkenhead. I believe I can make a difference and offer real change in the area.
From a personal perspective, I am passionate about education access and the NHS. I currently work as a Lecturer in the School of Medicine at the University of Liverpool. I have seen first-hand how the marketisation of higher education has denied access to many people who are capable of further study. Ongoing lack of investment in the NHS and particularly the imposition of the Junior Doctor contract are issues I feel very strongly about.
I have worked in care homes, call centres, local government and universities with people from different backgrounds and cultures. These experiences have helped me understand the concerns of a range of people, and how to effectively listen and empathise with their situation. I think my people skills would be one of my biggest assets in standing for election.
As I have grown up in Birkenhead and many of my family and friends live here, I genuinely care about the future of the area. I believe the Green Party is the only political party seeking real change in delivering these services.
