Unfortunately, I didn’t make the shortlist for selection to be Labour’s candidate for Plymouth Moor View at the next General Election.
I ran a people-powered campaign and I wanted to say a big big thank you to everyone that supported me on the ground, made a donation and sent words of encouragement.
As with every new challenge, I have learnt a lot from the process especially the importance of pushing yourself forward and having a goal and working towards it.
From the start that, it was important to me that as an all women shortlist we showed that women in Labour can lead the way and politics doesn’t have to be negative slander-fest.
So in that spirit a big thank you to the other candidates for making this a positive experience and I am 100% behind Charlotte Holloway who was chosen to represent the seat for Labour by the members.
