I’m Labour’s candidate for Lincoln at the next General Election. I used to be part of Britain’s Foreign Office, leading teams like the Terorrism Response Team, working to respond to terrorist attacks and kidnaps of British people overseas. I’ve set out my five pledges to you that I’ll commit to get done if I’m elected as Lincoln’s Member of Parliament.
Every week I hear from people concerned about our NHS: about waiting more than 30 hours for an ambulance, overstretched staff in A&E, and the struggle to get appointments. I am absolutely committed to improving this; focusing on bringing in investment, keeping doctors and nurses in the city after they graduate, and delivering Labour’s ambitious plans for more staff, scanners and appointments.
In Lincoln, Bracebridge Heath, Waddington and Skellingthorpe working people are struggling. Wages are 10% lower than the national average, and have declined in real terms since 2010. We’re a young, dynamic city with high tech strengths, deep history, and rich heritage. It doesn’t need to be like this. My priority is to get wages rising through high tech, green jobs, investment in Lincoln’s existing strengths, and giving young people the work and housing they want to stay and help build an even brighter future for the city.
I’m ambitious for Lincoln, I believe this city can do so much better and I need a strong Labour team to help deliver that change both locally and nationally. On May 2nd please vote Labour across the ballot. Lincolnshire is currently the most Conservative county in the country, with only Conservative MPs and a big Conservative majority at the county council. For our city to thrive we need change, and that can only happen with a strong voice locally and nationally. If there are local issues you would like to tell me about or see more attention to, please get in touch via the form below.

I want to hear from all residents in Lincoln, Bracebridge Heath, Waddington and Skellingthorpe.
Our city is at a crossroads. The past 13 years of Conservative government have been shambolic and left people in Lincoln struggling to make ends meet.
I have a plan to get our city fulfilling its huge potential again – but I want to hear from you too .
