Thank you for doing me the honour of electing me as your Member of Parliament for the Kensington Constituency. Sir Malcolm Rifkind had a long and very distinguished career in national politics and served the constituency of Kensington & Chelsea since 2005, and from 2010 the new constituency of Kensington. (Greg Hands MP is the MP for CHELSEA)
This election is probably the most important for a generation. We have seen from the Chancellor’s statement and the Budget that we must continue with our long term economic plan to get this country out of debt. We have a duty to ensure that our children and grandchildren are not saddled with debt for years to come.
I live in Kensington, grew up here and raised our four children with my husband Jamie.
As a Kensington and Chelsea Councillor, Boris Johnson’s Deputy Mayor of London and school governor in North Kensington for over 20 years, I listen to residents and help tackle their issues and concerns.
If you wish to raise a concern with me I am hold regular surgeries locally, and make sure that I am available to residents. Some issues will be resolved by the local council or other agencies, but I can certainly follow these up and see if we can make progress.
I support David Cameron and George Osborne in delivering the long term economic plan that is vital to our economic recovery.
My Campaign priorities were:
- Fight to oppose the mansion tax that would hit Kensington families hard
- Support the renegotiation of our membership terms with the European Union
- Oppose the way that inconsiderate building projects disrupt the lives of our residents
- Maintain the sense of family and community that makes Kensington such a special place to live
- Increase employment opportunities in Kensington
- Fight to end health inequalities in Kensington
We have a new team heading up our Local KCF Conservative Association and as a new MP I appreciate that people will not know me, so I am very much looking forward to attending as many community events as I can, Do contact my office if you would like me to visit a community event or project. Please see “contact me” page.
