Statement to voters

I moved to Coventry back in 2009 and have since put down roots and decided that this is the place I want to bring up my family, Coventry has become my home over the past 10 years and it's vibrant, diverse people are one of the many reasons why I want to represent the city and it's people as an elected representative.

I have worked in the private sector for the past 18 years most recently in the Building/Renewables Merchanting industry and am also a trustee for a small charity engaging with children from underprivileged backgrounds.

As the Green Party candidate for Coventry North East my campaign priorities will be; introduction of the living wage which will enable the people of Coventry to meet their needs without having to resort to foodbanks, the building of 500,000 new social housing plots and the abolition of buy to let tax breaks which have made finding quality family accommodation in this city harder year on year & the complete reversal of damaging and creeping privatisation within the NHS which will allow the excellent staff of Coventry & Warwickshire Health Trust to put patient care back at the forefront of their work.

I would also like to clearly state my position as a candidate on the issue of Brexit, I fully support the campaign for a confirmatory referendum (otherwise known as a peoples vote). The issue of leaving the EU is the single biggest decision this country has made in the past 40 years and in order to provide a positive future for our children it is vital we get it right.

This statement was added by Matthew Handley, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
