Edward lives in the heart of the Charnwood constituency, having grown up in Kent where he attended one of his local state schools before studying history at Oriel College, Oxford. He’s spent almost a decade working in business, as well as previously spending four years as adviser to the then Shadow Foreign Secretary, and has also taken an active role in public service as a school governor, charity trustee, on the board of an NHS Trust, and as a councillor.
Edward’s number one priority will be to ensure that we secure the economic recovery now underway, and that it delivers continued investment and jobs locally for Charnwood. The first-class public services we rely on need a strong economy to fund them, and as Charnwood’s MP he will support and help improve them. Edward will campaign for a fair funding deal for Leicestershire, and will work with local councillors and residents to keep our part of Leicestershire special and ensure that over-development is opposed, and where development does happen that it’s matched with proper infrastructure.
Edward will work with the whole community to ensure that what always comes first is what’s right for Charnwood.
