Statement to voters

So, after lengthy discussion with family and close friends I have decided that I will be contesting the Calder Valley seat in the upcoming General Election as an Independent Candidate. Many of you that know me will know that I entered into politics to make a difference and to represent the area that I was born and raised. I grew up in Cornholme, and attended Todmorden High School, I have worked in the Calder Valley for a good part of my working life and it is a place that I am fiercely passionate about.
The Calder Valley is an amazing place which has overcome a great deal of adversity over the past years in spite of weak representation at Westminster. I have worked hard over the past years to ensure that flood alleviation and protection is at the top of both the local and national political agendas and will continue to do so. There was a great deal said from the rooftops of the poor condition of a number of our schools in the Calder Valley and how much they were key to the future of our children, it’s sad to say that two years on very little has changed. The Calder Valley needs strong representation and I hope that the people of the Calder Valley will place their trust in me to deliver that.
