I am 29 years old and I grew up here attending Holtspur Middle School and John Hampden Grammar School. I feel this equips me to understand the issues that many, especially younger people, around the constituency face.

I am building our campaign around local issues such as the lack of affordable housing and under-provision of childcare and nursery places.

A vote for Labour is a vote for more achievements like adding 19,000 hectares to the green belt since 1997 and introducing the New Deal which has helped 380,00 young people into work and new commitments including at least one surestart children's centre in every constituency and a 20 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2010.
