I was born and raised in Sheffield. I grew up in a mining village, went to a local comprehensive school and graduated from Sheffield University. Sheffield is my home, and I care about our city and our people. As a youth group leader, volunteer, and fundraiser, I have worked to make things better on a local level. I seek now to be a strong local voice to stand up for our city at a key moment in our country’s history.
Last summer we took a momentous decision. If Theresa May wins this election, we will leave the EU and regain control of our borders and our country in March 2019. The best way to help her get the greatest possible deal for Britain is to give her the strongest possible mandate going into the negotiation process. A clear result in her favour will demonstrate to Brussels that Brexit will be crisp, clean - and successful.
We now need strong and capable leadership. Theresa May will deliver that. A coalition of chaos will not. I am standing to support Mrs May to get the best deal for Brightside and Hillsborough, for Sheffield, and for Britain.
