I gave a keynote speech on this subject last Friday 29th May at De Montfort University, which you can read here. I’d very much welcome your feedback. If you’d like to get involved in my leadership campaign, please visit lizforleader.com
It was a huge honour to be re-elected as your MP. Thank you to all who gave me your trust. To everyone who decided differently, or stayed at home, I respect your choice and I know my job is to help every single constituent the best I can.
Labour needs to listen and to learn the lessons following our very disappointing national defeat in the election. That’s why I’m putting myself forward for the leadership of the Labour Party. You can read an article I wrote for the Leicester Mercury about this here. If you’d like to join me on a journey to change my party so that we can change the country, please visit lizforleader.com
Whatever happens over the next few weeks, I’ll continue to work hard for Leicester West and to make sure that my constituents remain my top priority.
I’m campaigning for more affordable housing in Leicester West – including building more rented social housing – and help for homeowners through the recession.
As Labour’s Shadow Minister for Care and Older People I’m campaigning for better services and support for older people, carers and their families, and a sustainable system for funding social care in future.
I’m working to help your family by pressing for faster progress in local schools, more improvements in our NHS, and continued investment in children’s early years.
Helping businesses and making sure people have got the skills and training they need to work and earn a decent living is a top priority in Leicester West.
