With the announcement that after many years as your MP, Kelvin Hopkins is retiring, it is a real privilege to be standing as your Labour candidate for Luton North in the election on 12 December.
Every community across Luton deserves better than a Conservative Government that has handed down cuts to services and allowed big businesses to exploit local workers. My experience working in care, in hospitals and in the fire brigade means I know the difference that well resourced public services can bring to the town and I will fight tooth and nail for the investment that Luton needs.
I have a proven track record of delivering change - whether that’s against Tory cuts, or securing better rights for workers from foster carers to the emergency services, manufacturers to shop workers in Luton North - they are all better protected because of laws I’ve helped change and campaigns I have run. And I will continue to deliver if elected as your MP.
Like many people in the town, I may not have been born in Luton but I will live, work and breathe Luton - every decision taken and every campaign fought will be done working with local communities, for the benefit of the many and not the few.
