Candidates take part in Canterbury Hustings

It was an absolute pleasure to take part in last night’s hustings at Canterbury Christ Church University. It was so encouraging to see such a packed room full of hundreds of people all wanting to ask their candidates important questions ahead of the general election on 12 December.

The quality of questions and debate was superb and provided a brilliant opportunity for me to set out why and how I will make a difference if elected as your MP for Canterbury, Whitstable and the surrounding villages.

It is truly excellent that three of the candidates standing in this constituency are women and it would be an honour to be the first female Conservative MP to represent you all.

A huge thank you to all those involved in making the event happen and allowing the candidates to discuss the things that matter most to our local community.

I want to make sure that people of Canterbury and Whitstable get a new hospital by continuing to work with the Health Secretary on this, fight for our fair share of the Conservative Government’s pledged 20,000 police officers on our streets, help us all get around more easily by working to achieve better roads, ensure our schools receive more per pupil funding and of course protect our beautiful Kent countryside by upholding the United Kingdom’s leading record on tackling climate change under a Conservative majority.

Vote for me on 12 December and let’s get Brexit done so that we can focus on what Canterbury and Whitstable needs.
