She is also a former County Council candidate for the Conservatives .

She said: “I pledge to be a strong voice for Eastwood, Kirkby and Sutton in Parliament with my focus being on supporting the community and constituents.

“To be a good at my job you have to be able to listen and care, I believe to be a good MP you have to do the same.

“I am proud to have worked on the frontline in the NHS and will be a champion of our local care services from hospitals to GP surgeries.”

“To be a good at my job you have to be able to listen and care, I believe to be a good MP you have to do the same.

“Also key to my campaign is the economy and I will be fighting for more jobs and investment locally as part of the Government’s ‘Long Term Economic Plan’ for the country.

“We have had already made good progress with the claimant count down by 40 per cent in Ashfield since 2010 with more people now enjoying the security of a regular pay packet.”

She stands against current Labour MP Gloria de Piero, and Lib Dem candidate Jason Zadrozny.
