A vote for the Labour Party on June the 8th, is a vote for safer communities, better education and more organised NHS, the Nottingham South Labour Candidate has told The Wire.
Labour are committed to making Nottingham the best place it can be for everyone who lives, works, does business and relaxes here.
A hard Brexit would also damage our world-leading universities in the region. We need a strong voice in Government to ensure a deal that works for this vital sector including our own University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent.
Proposed Tory cuts on our local schools in Nottingham will also have a negative impact on our children’s education. Lilian says she wants every child in Nottingham to get the best possible start in life, and will continue to campaign hard to stop these damaging cuts from going ahead.
Lilian Greenwood, who is defending the seat this time around after winning a 6,900 vote majority in 2015, was elected on 6th May 2010 to serve as the Labour Member of Parliament for Nottingham South – which covers the wards of Bridge, Clifton North, Clifton South, Dunkirk and Lenton, Leen Valley, Radford and Park, Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey and Wollaton West.
As the MP for Nottingham South, Lilian has an office in the city centre, and since she was elected she has visited a wide range of community groups, schools, businesses and organisations across her constituency.
“It’s been a huge honour to represent Nottingham South for the past 7 years and I’m proud to be standing again on my record as a community-focussed MP who has worked hard for our city,” said Miss Greenwood.
“In Parliament, I have championed Nottingham and I’m proud of the things I’ve worked with residents to achieve – including the widening of the A453, Remembrance Way; the two new tram lines; and the solid-wall insulation scheme that’s meant thousands of families now have warmer homes and lower fuel bills.
“Standing up to this Conservative Government is more important than ever at a time when our local NHS hospitals are in a financial crisis and every single school in Nottingham South is facing damaging budget cuts under the Tories’ plans.
“Nottingham South residents need a strong and experienced MP who isn’t afraid to speak out and I hope they’ll back me again on 8th June.”
