The General Election in Sittingbourne and Sheppey is by no means decided.
Over the last four years we have listened to many thousands of residents calling for a better and fairer future.
There is concern about our local National Health Service and its future, worries about the impact of immigration on our daily lives. There are frustrations as our local infrastructure struggles to meet with demand; the worry created by low pay and unpredictable hours at work, a Benefit system that no longer seems to be there to support us and many of us having to do more with less and for less, whilst struggling to make ends meet at home.
I believe we can set about tackling these challenges and create a better and fairer future. We can form a new Government that does care and will support us when we need it; making sure we can all share in our country’s prosperity and that everyone plays by the same rules, including those at the top of our society.
A Labour MP in a Labour Government working alongside our Labour Councillors will set about securing the future of our local Health and Care services so they are there for all of us when we need them; we will plan for our future from school places to the homes we really need and set about realising the infrastructure to improve the quality of our lives. We will address the impact of immigration in the workplace and make sure that hard work is rewarded not by Social Security subsidising low wages but through wages that we can live on.
e will support young people and lend a helping hand so they can find a decent job and a home. We will support our public services and the men and women who provide those services, all too often taken for granted; we will support the businesses that make up our local economy and help our local entrepreneurs build a better and prospering Sittingbourne and Sheppey.
There is a lot to do but with your support and your vote on May 7th, I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.
With very best wishes,
Labour Parliamentary Candidate
