Warwick and Leamington Labour candidate stands for re-election

Leamington Editorial 5th Jun, 2024   0

THE LABOUR candidate for Warwick and Leamington is standing to be re-elected as MP for the third time.

Matt Western was joined by over 70 supporters as he officially launched his General Election campaign on Thursday May 30.

Mr Western, who has lived in Warwick and Leamington since 2004, has served as the Labour MP for the constituency from 2017 until Parliament was dissolved following prime minister Rishi Sunak’s decision to finally call an election.

He said: “I first moved here in 2004 and never dreamed I would have the honour of serving our communities but it has been the privilege of my life and I would love to continue.

“I first entered politics because I was angry, angry that our communities were being let down. I know, speaking to many residents, they feel the same.

“We can all see what the last 14 years have done to our communities; people know they are worse off, people know they can no longer rely on the services you did years ago and people feel nothing is working.

“It is time for the change our country so desperately needs. I have and will continue to be out speaking to residents about the change we deserve.

“July 4 is our chance to vote for change. Let’s do this.”
