Fairer funding for Leicestershire

For too long, Leicestershire hasn't received a fair share of funding compared to other parts of the Country.

The funding formula is not transparent and is out of date.

Improving housing and planning

I care passionately about preserving our beautiful landscapes, villages and towns.

I’m fighting to change our broken planning system, which puts development in the wrong places, is biased in favour of developers and ties the hands of local councillors. 

Backing our Schools

I am a strong advocate of good education and I am fighting for fair funding for our schools.  I went to a state school and then university and want to make sure others have the same chances I had.

Better road, rail service and broadband

I am campaigning for investment in our roads, rail service and broadband. Improving our infrastructure can help to bring more businesses and jobs to the constituency and help our day to day lives run more smoothly.

Community relations and tackling loneliness

One of the things that makes this such a special place is the really strong sense of community.  That’s true in Harborough, Oadby and Wigston too.  There is a huge amount of voluntary and charity work here, and I’m keen to support this wherever possible.

Fighting crime and disorder

One of the things that brought me into politics is a belief in the importance of law and order. Everyone suffers if there is antisocial behaviour and fear, and the vulnerable the suffer most of all.
