Election 2017

The choice in Bristol South

I am asking you to vote for me on June 8th, so I can continue the work I’ve been doing for south Bristol communities since I became your MP just two years ago.

When I was elected in 2015 I promised to work hard for local communities, focusing on my priorities of health & social care; jobs and skills; and housing. And I promised to listen hard to local people, representing your interests in Bristol and in Westminster.

As your local champion since 2015 I’ve been working hard to honour my promises:

   -    Organised the first ever South Bristol Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair: over 400 people got career and skills support

   -    Successfully campaigned to improve services at South Bristol Community Hospital, Hengrove

   -    Worked with Bristol’s Mayor Marvin Rees to start building more housing for local people

   -    Arranged popular Money Entitlement events, bringing organisations together to help residents get their financial entitlements

   -    Campaigned in Parliament to improve safety of towed trailers and air rifles after residents who’d experienced tragedies asked me for help

I’ve been using my position as your MP to make progress on all these things and more, bringing people and organisations together to address problems – actively involving them in finding solutions.

And because I’ve held regular advice surgeries, and frequently listen to residents’ views on their doorsteps, I know there’s so much more to do.

I want to carry on fighting for local people.

I can only continue to do this if you re-elect me to carry on this vital work.

In Bristol South it’s a straight choice between me - a Bristol-focused Labour candidate with a great track record of hard work - or a Tory candidate, pushing a hard Brexit.

Voters chose to elect me as their local MP just two years ago. I’m asking you to please use your vote on June 8th for Labour so I can carry on making our area better.
