Statement to voters

Sunderland has always been my home, and what affects me and my family affects everyone in Sunderland too. As your MP for seven years, everything I have done has been to try to improve the lives of local people.

Voting for your local MP gives you the power to decide who will be the best at standing up for you and making sure the Government can’t ignore what’s important to us.

I have always put Sunderland first, campaigning to save our fire station, supporting our schools and the NHS, helping with people’s housing and benefit problems.

If you elect me as your MP, I promise to:
l Defend our children’s education and oppose the Conservatives’ plan to end free school dinners for the under-eights and take £470 from every child in Sunderland.

:: Keep supporting our doctors, nurses and GPs, and all NHS staff, who have been so badly treated by the Conservatives. They are there for us and I will be there for them.

:: Fight for the best possible Brexit deal to keep jobs here for our people, protect local businesses and exports, and work hard to get a secure future for Nissan.

:: Bring new jobs to Sunderland and more money into our economy, making the most of development around the New Wear Crossing.
l Improve safety and security and use my voice in Parliament to demand Government support for our emergency services.

Sunderland suffers when the Conservatives are in power. The choice here is a Conservative MP who will never speak out against a Conservative Prime Minister, or a Labour MP with the strength and experience to be your national voice.

Please don’t let Sunderland be silenced. Please vote for me on June 8.
