This has been a rather unexpected week, with Tuesday’s surprise announcement of a General Election.
I’m delighted to announce that I will be standing on June 8th for re-election as the MP for Cambridge.
After the catastrophic result of the EU Referendum last year, I decided I could not sit back and let the country suffer.
I’m proud of what I managed to achieve for Cambridge and for Cambridge’s values, getting more money into our schools and NHS, and for sustainable transport and affordable housing. But there is much more to do.
I lost very narrowly last time, and hope to be able to change that this time.
But to do that, I need your help and your support. I hope you will vote for me and over the next weeks I will be in touch to tell you what I can offer and let you know how you can get in touch so that I can hear what issues you are concerned about.
If you have already decided, there’s lots you can do to help my campaign.
Our office at 15 Ronald Rolph Court, off Wadloes Road, is already in full swing with volunteers helping with all sorts of tasks. We’re open seven day a week from 10am-8pm right through until June 8th. You can just walk in and help anytime or sign up online HERE.
Lots of people are asking us to put up posters in their gardens to encourage other people - you can sign up for one of those HERE.
And lastly, all this costs money. The more we raise the more we can do. If you can help out with a donation, I’d be enormously grateful.
This election is a chance for us to reassert the open, liberal values we share in Cambridge. Brexiteers want to take our country backwards, I want to take it forward. Please join me.
