I am ready for the task ahead
I have always taken a keen interest in local matters and have spent nearly a decade working towards being the Member of Parliament for West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, in the St Ives Constituency. This has been good preparation for the job and I am determined to be an excellent local Constituency Member of Parliament.
A summary of my priorities:
- Create more jobs and better pay - This will improve living standards and make it easier to buy a home
- Achieve meaningful integration between health and social care - to ensure vulnerable and older people feel safe and valued.
- Fight for more funding and improvements to our schools -so that our children can get the best start in life.
- Secure the investment needed to regenerate our tired areas - to take pride in our assets such as Penzance Harbour and the Promenade.
- Improve transport links - so we can access public services more easily and improve job opportunities.
- Improve connectivity for West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly - I am on the case for better mobile phone signals and broadband capabilities.
- Healthier high streets - I want our town centres to be the heart of our communities
- Support Town and Parish Councils - as they take on a greater role in delivering local public services.
- Create equal opportunities for all - so that everybody has a chance to get on.
