Sarah Newton was elected to represent her home seat of Truro and Falmouth in 2010.
She has focused on speaking up for Cornwall’s public services, which historically have been underfunded. After repeated representations to Ministers Sarah helped secure year on year above inflation rises for the NHS in Cornwall running up to 2016.
Sarah also campaigns on better transport links for her constituents, and having protected existing train services, is now pushing to extend and improve them.
She has also campaigned tirelessly for local people feeling the pinch as result of the 2008 crash, focusing on helping the poorest.
Sarah believes that access to high-quality education and skills training and well paid work is the best way people can transform their lives and is working with employers to promote accessible skills training and a Living Wage for Cornwall.
Sarah looks forward to continuing to speak up for her community to enable a better life for one and all.
