General Election: Labour candidate for Sherwood Jerry Hague's campaign to rebuild communities
The Labour General Election candidate for Sherwood has said rebuilding communities is at the heart of his campaign.
Jerry Hague said he had had knocked on 15,000 doors since 2018 and hoped to visit thousands more in an attempt to gain the support of his constituency.
He said he had a flying start to the campaign, with supporters helping to leaflet throughout Sherwood, trying to connect with as many voters as possible.
Mr Hague said: “The message on the doorstep is that voters want change after nine years of Tory austerity and people say we need investment to rebuild communities, and restore pride in Sherwood.
“I am offering voters a positive vision, which protects the NHS, supports our schools and police, and resolves Brexit with the public having the final say.”
Mr Hague said that the issues raised by residents had changed since the election had been called, as voters now wanted to talk about more than Brexit.
“People know a bad deal threatens the NHS being sold off under a one-sided US trade deal,” said Mr Hague.
“People realise this election is a chance to make a new start and to move on from the damaging and failed policies of the past nine years.
“I will be doing all I can to show voters this is their chance to bring real change to Sherwood.”
The other Sherwood candidates are Esther Cropper (Green), Mark Spencer (Conservative), Timothy Ball (Lib Dem) and Simon Rood (Ind).
All candidates standing for the Sherwood seat have been given the opportunity to tell the Advertiser about their General Election campaigning.
