"I am pleased to have been selected to represent Labour at this election, if elected I would seek to keep you informed with regular surgeries and newsletters, and campaign for better facilities for young people.
The Conservative government and the previous coalition with the help of the Liberal Democrats have inflicted severe and unfair cuts in funding to local councils, police and fire services in the name of austerity. This is why services are under so much pressure. The blame for these cuts must stay with the government.
