I’ve been working on behalf of residents in the Loughborough constituency since 2004, and as your MP since 2010.
In that time, I’ve dealt with literally thousands of cases, helping local people resolve problems relating to issues such as benefits, housing, immigration, education and social services.
I’ve recently been fighting to secure a trial of the full pedestrianisation of Loughborough town centre, which I hope will help our shops and small businesses flourish.
I’ve also secured government funding for the Loughborough Inner Relief Road, the Midland Mainline electrification and Loughborough College and University – all crucial investments for our local economy.
I’m passionate about the cause of mental health, to end the stigma around the issue and to improve patient care. As well as leading a ground-breaking debate in the House of Commons on this issue, I’ve organised several local meetings, bringing together patients, doctors, social services and the police.
I hold regular surgeries and visit many local organisations, businesses, charities and schools every month. It’s my privilege to serve as your MP and it’s my hope that I can continue working for a better future for Loughborough beyond the next election.
