Anne Emerson- Addlestone North
Labour values are my values - fairness, justice and equality for all.
I have spent most of my life in Runnymede. I grew up locally and care deeply about the current state and future potential of Addlestone.
As a teacher, I’ve worked in secondary and further education, most recently at Brooklands College, Weybridge. I am passionate about maintaining standards and fairness in our schools and colleges.
I am a long-term carer and I have personal experience of the social welfare system, care of the elderly and our NHS hospital, St. Peter’s – all now at risk.
To me Labour represents a history of fairness and care for every citizen – not just those at the top. Our history shows our determination to make living in the UK better for all. Labour set up the NHS (voted against by the Conservatives and now being run down and privatised by the Conservatives), brought in the National Minimum Wage (again voted against by the Conservatives) and Sure Start centres making sure every child counts (the Conservatives have so far cut funding by a huge 50%).
I have stood and campaigned in Addlestone North twice before, halving the Conservative lead on the last occasion. Please give me the opportunity to voice the other side of the argument to a Tory-led Runnymede Council – especially at this time of savage cuts to your services.
