West Lancashire’s Rosie Cooper said:
“It has been my honour and privilege to have the people of West Lancashire for the last 14 years. In that time I have always fought for your priorities, to make your voice heard and for a better future for West Lancashire as a whole.
“I stand by my record on championing issues important to local residents A record of delivering on my promises.
“I have always kept my commitment to being West Lancashire’s voice in Westminster, not Westminster’s voice in West Lancashire.
“An NHS in crisis, school funding cuts, a broken social care system unable to support the elderly and vulnerable, a climate change emergency and threats to our environment, rising crime levels and lowering policing numbers. This is the price of Conservative government. A price West Lancashire residents are paying.
“It is clear that Conservative priorities are not West Lancashire’s priorities.
“I am working with local residents, in opposing fracking in West Lancashire; Labour is committed to banning fracking; on securing investment to tackle the devastating effects of flooding and drainage that will better protect homes and entire communities; and supporting action on the climate change emergency we face.
“I believe passionately in our NHS, and am committed to continuing to fight off any threat to the future of Ormskirk hospital, stopping further privatisation and bringing those contracts back into NHS hands ensuring for all service users quality of care, dignity and independence through properly funded health and social care services.
“As the eldest daughter of Deaf Parents, I lived the unfairness, injustice and discrimination they endured. All they wanted was a fair chance as we all do. As my track record shows, I’ve always fought as hard for West Lancashire residents as I fought for my own family. West Lancashire needs a strong voice, someone who will be your voice and will fight for your priorities.
“My commitment to you at this election is that I will continue to be on your side, working with you, fighting for a better deal for West Lancashire.”
