Statement to voters

My offer to you.

Full statement

I am passionate about improving the lives for us and our families and friends. During this general election, we have a choice. In the Forest of Dean, we will end up with either Mark Harper, or me as your MP. You know what you will get with Mark, his record and reputation goes before him. But what is the alternative? Well if you elect me as your MP I will be here for you. I will hold regular surgeries. I will be visible. I will answer your queries and questions. I will take matters to Parliament that are important to you. I will be your local MP and dedicated to the role. I will fight for a better NHS, better access to dentists, better education for our children, better roads and I will do everything I can to ensure that the Forest of Dean is no longer the poor neighbour in Gloucestershire. Vote for me and vote for a better, brighter future. Things can only get better and its time to stop the chaos, turn the page and start to rebuild our country. #LabourParty #GeneralElection2024
