Get Brexit Done

With Britain and Staffordshire Moorlands going to the polls ion 12th December, I wanted to get in touch to encourage you to vote and to explain why, in this perhaps most important of General Elections, a vote for anyone other than the Conservatives will lead to stagnation for our great country.

Proper Funding for Schools

I am working hard to support all our local schools and following our increase in funding in primary and secondary schools by £14 billion over the next three years, this year’s multi-million-pound fund will support our pledge to create more good school places, continue raising standards and getting fairer funding for Staffordshire. I am also working to give a long-term sustainable future to our local special needs schools, including Horton Lodge and Cecily Horton.

Protecting our Environment

The Moorlands is one of the most beautiful places in Britain and I am committed to protecting its natural beauty. I voted for a carbon neutral UK and support our plans to protect the environment. For our most rural areas, I have been lobbying for better broadband, more buses and protecting school transport. I am also working to save the brilliant Leek Show.

More Police on the Streets

We have a lower than average crime rate in Staffordshire thanks to our fantastic Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner. We are determined to tackle to tackle all types of crime and keep our streets safe – delivering 20,000 more police to protect the public and with new laws such as on domestic abuse, give the police the powers that they need.

Helping combat Loneliness and Isolation

I have pledged to help tackle the important issue of Loneliness & Isolation. With initiatives such as my Senior Tea Dances, my Loneliness Conference and my Loneliness & Isolation Directory, I am determined to make a difference.

Enhancing our NHS

The NHS is one of Britain’s greatest assets and I am committed to keeping it in public hands, free whenever it is needed. It is not for sale. I am determined that we keep investing in our brilliant NHS and, with a strong economy, we can properly fund local health services and make sure that our NHS is there for you and your family. I will continue to make sure we have the right services locally, including at Leek Moorlands Hospital.
