Having been born and raised in west Cumbria, as well as bringing up my own family here, I understand first-hand the issues surrounding Copeland and its constituents. With a successful track record of securing vital investments, I am committed to making the most of the opportunities on offer whilst being a strong voice for our local communities.
If elected, my priorities are to support our world class nuclear and industrial future, promote our specialist skills, safeguard jobs and ultimately secure a stronger economy. I started my career at Sellafield, as did my husband, and I will work hard to ensure that Copeland is prepared for and benefits from the multi-billion pound transformational projects.
Protecting and securing vital health services is also paramount to our area. I, along with all four of my daughters were born at West Cumberland Hospital, and will work hard to protect and secure the investments we need. Raising four children, I also know the importance of a quality education and will champion the essential investments our children, and their children deserve in order to secure their bright and prosperous futures.
Our roads, rail services and connectivity are in dire need of investment, and I will fight for the improvements that we so desperately need. I will act in Copeland’s best interests as we leave the European Union to secure a better future for you, your family and Copeland.
