Braintree has a huge proportion of small/medium sized business and the potential here is fantastic.
I want to unlock the potential of local businesses to succeed, grow and employ more people. I spent twenty years in business before starting my own company, which is why I am passionate about reducing taxes for businesses and their employees.
We need to drive up educational achievement in both academic and vocational courses to make sure that young people are ready to take advantage of these opportunities.
As your MP I will fight for:
A connected Braintree: Including improvements to the A120 and the roll-out of broadband and mobile data to the countryside and villages.
Business for Braintree: Reducing tax and red tape for small/medium size businesses to help them grow and recruit.
Quality education for all: Giving local people of all ages the chance to develop, learn and take advantage of the improving economy.
As a constituency Braintree has historic towns and beautiful villages and I will work to ensure that its best days are ahead.
