Why I am re-standing for Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove

It’s been the greatest privilege to represent you in the House of Commons for the last two years as your REAL Labour voice for Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove. I’m delighted that the Labour Party have today confirmed my candidacy fir the snap General Election on 8th June.

Since 2015 I have tried everyday to represent you, fighting for more local investment, better jobs, a Brexit deal that works for the Potteries and real support and recognition for our Armed Forces. I’ve also fought alongside local people against cuts to our schools and NHS services and to oppose the attempted sell off of our local cancer and end-of-life care.

I am proud of how much we achieved together in just two short years. But there is still so much to be done to ensure that everyone in Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove has the opportunity to live their lives in comfort and security, for our children to have the best start in life, and for our city to take its rightful place as the industrial heart and creative soul of Britain.

As I’m asking for your vote I think its important that you know what makes me tick. So my priorities as your representative will be:

  1. A brexit deal which works for everyone in the Potteries, making sure we eliver on last years vote.
  2. Strong national defences, making sure that our Armed Forces have what they need to keep us safe and ensuring that we look after them when they retire.
  3. Holiday Hunger – fighting to end the blight of hungry kids in our community.

 You’ve been my priority since I got elected and I promise that won’t change after 8th June. So please make sure you vote and vote for your REAL Labour candidate. Vote for me!
