Statement to voters
I am proud to be Labour’s candidate for June’s general election. Brentwood and Ongar is my home. It’s where I grew up and it’s where I chose to buy my first home.
This Tory government has overseen the biggest cuts to our public services in a generation. The NHS and social care are in crisis, our schools are struggling under the weight of the budget cuts and cuts to police budgets are putting our safety at risk.
People here in Brentwood and Ongar need a truly local representative who will put them first. I will work tirelessly between now and June to let local people know that this general election will be a choice between a Labour Party that will stand up for the people of Brentwood and Ongar, or a Conservative Party that only looks after the privileged few.
This statement was added by Gareth Barrett, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
