Since 2005 I have been listening to the concerns and ideas of people who live in West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. That is why I am working to address the following four priorities:
- Skills (so that people can get the skills needed to earn more money)
- Jobs (so that people of all ages have the opportunity to stay and work in Cornwall and on Scilly)
- Housing (so that we can provide houses that people can afford to live in
- Health (to integrate health and social care, employ more support and care workers, improve mental health services and reduce demand on the NHS by improving public health).
These are the things people tell me matter most to them.
