PUTTING CUMBRIA FIRST

The North of England Community Alliance has today thrown its weight behind independent candidate for Penrith and the Border, Jonathan Davies.


Jonathan is a local family man, who is standing for Parliament to make life better for local people. He has no plans to be a career politician and no personal political agenda other than to be a local independent voice.


Brian Moore, Campaigns Director for the North of England Community Alliance, said: “Jonathan is fighting a strong campaign for change on behalf of local people. The national parties want their MPs to put their party first but Jonathan is not a career politician. He is passionate for Cumbria and will put Penrith and the Border first if he is elected as its MP.


“We believe he will be a first class MP for Penrith and the Border and that is why we have made the decision to back him. We are urging people who normally vote for other parties to lend their vote to Jonathan to help him beat the Tories.”


Jonathan Davies, independent candidate for Penrith and the Border (pictured above), welcoming the North of England Community Alliance’s support, said: “I am delighted that my commitment has been recognised and I welcome the North of England Community Alliance’s backing for my campaign to put Cumbria first.


“I have committed myself to fighting to reverse funding cuts to our public services including education, NHS and local government. Funding cuts that Rory Stewart voted to support in February this year by setting the main central government grant to local government for 2017-18 at a level 44% lower than it had already been lowered to for 2016-17.


“I will also back our local small business owners & farmers that are vital to our rural economy. I will campaign for the support and funding needed to help them grow without government red-tape and increased taxation burdens been placed on them to help our nation prosper beyond Brexit.


“I have also said that, if I am given the privilege of been elected as MP for Penrith and the Border, I will only take a living wage for the role and ensure the remaining money paid for the role is invested into local community support and growth projects here in Penrith and the Border.

 

“I will ensure Penrith and the Border gets the best possible deal from Westminster and that will not be achieved by having yet another Tory MP climbing the greasy pole in Government.”


Jonathan is an independent candidate, standing on his own manifesto. More information about his campaign is on his website, which is available at www.puttingcumbriafirst.co.uk.
