Thank you!

? Dear?John, I would like to thank you all for the many kind and supportive comments I have received since my result was announced. Losing, by such a small margin, was devastating. I am proud, however, of the issues we have resolved or campaigns we have run over the last two decades.…

Keeping Sutton Safe

Dear John -- Keeping people safe should be the Government’s top priority. Unfortunately what's clear to me is how difficult the police's job has become because of Government cuts - £600 million in cuts to the MET budget in the last four years with another £325 million of cuts planned …

Three more victories!

Dear?John, I've got some great news for you: TfL have agreed to increase capacity on the 463, 633 and 93 bus routes. That means three more of our 'Better Buses for Sutton' campaign demands have been met. This just goes to show that we can secure real change when we work together! But…

Taking on the climate crisis 🌍

Dear?John, Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return. Climate change is causing temperatures to soar, the ice caps to melt and whole species to be wiped out. We need to take action on climate change now! That's why the Liberal Democrats have produce…

We need a guarantee

Dear?John, The news that our local NHS will receive hundreds of millions of pounds of investment is welcome. But I feel apprehensive about it. The Government have made assurances in the past but then backtracked on their promise. That's why I have written to the Health Secretary, Mat…

BREAKING: Major funding announced for St Helier!

Dear?John, Today it was revealed in The Telegraph that our local NHS is in line to receive millions of pounds of investment. This funding will allow the NHS to refurbish the older parts of St Helier and Epsom Hospitals, recruit more staff and build a brand new acute health facility f…

Quite simply outrageous.

Dear?John, The Mayor of London has given Sutton less money than any other borough. That is quite simply outrageous. Figures show that just ?16 million of the Mayor's capital funding has been allocated to Sutton. Bromley, on the other hand, got ?43 million, Croydon got ?194 million an…

Back to school ✏

Dear?John, Schools might be back this week, but the Government are still failing the grade on funding. Their latest announcement doesn't get full marks -- it will only see more funding go into schools next year. That isn't good enough. Teachers are struggling to buy basic supplies no…

Some good news! 🚌

Dear?John, Good news: TfL have agreed to increase the frequency on the 127 and 154 bus routes -- one of our campaign's key demands! That means the 127 will increase to 6 buses per hour, Monday to Saturday, and 4 buses per hour on Sundays. Meanwhile, the 154 will increase to 6 buses p…

They ignored St Helier!

Dear?John, Boris Johnson has been Prime Minister for just a few weeks and he's already abandoned Sutton's NHS! His latest ?1.8 billion funding announcement puts money into twenty hospitals, including two in London. But not a penny has been announced for St Helier! That is just so dis…

St Helier: Did you hear the news?

Dear?John, The local NHS has submitted initial plans to build a brand new, modern health facility in our area. And it could be located at either St Helier Hospital, Epsom Hospital or Sutton Hospital. I am fighting alongside local residents to get it located at St Helier. Will you joi…

Teachers' pay 👩‍🏫

Dear John, Over the past few years, teachers have seen their workload soar as school funding and resources have dwindled. Yet they’ve continued to go the extra mile to make sure our children get the very best start in life. So, like me, you might’ve been pleased to hear that they’ll …

What do you think about Boris Johnson?

Dear?John, Well, it's certainly been an interesting month. We have a new Prime Minister, Brexit still dominates the headlines and there are numerous challenges that need to be tackled up and down the country. So I just wanted to check-in and see how you feel about politics at the mom…
