We’re extremely proud as a constituency to have Katrina Gilman as our next Parliamentary Candidate. But rather than us telling you about her, we’ll let her introduce herself to you.
Let me introduce myself, I am Katrina Gilman, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Telford. My Labour values developed whilst growing up on Sutton Hill in Telford, being brought up as part of a hard working single parent family during the Thatcher’s government. While growing up these values became embedded as I saw how vilified working class people were portrayed by her Tory government. Now decades later the Tories are back at it again and living standards for most people are again falling.
I’ve worked in both the public and private sector and I know what it is like to live in the real world. Proud to have been born here and continue to call Telford my home, I want to stand up for the town and people I know and understand. I want to represent those who are just numbers to their current MP, to give them a voice, and let the people of the Telford have their say.
More than anything I believe this seat can and should be won and that we will return this seat for Labour in the next election, for the benefit of all those living in Telford.
