Born in Warwickshire and a local resident for nearly 30 years, Richard’s three children went to local State schools. As a Councillor here he’s known for standing up for the local community centre, children’s centre and our historic outdoor pool.
‘I’m standing because firstly this is my home. I’ll always put the needs of residents and local communities first before anything else.
Secondly, we need an MP who’ll champion what matters here. Having been on marches and worked together on street stalls with hundreds of local people, from all political parties and none, calling for a People’s Vote I know people worry about the UK not being in the EU.
Thirdly, we need a new way of working together to get things done. We face huge educational, health and wealth inequalities in our country as well as massive environmental and cultural challenges. We have to work together to solve these problems. The old two party system, with its extreme right and left-wing ideologies, is broken and needs changing.’
It’s time to do better in Kenilworth and Southam. Please join Richard's campaign.
