Faisal Rashid, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Warrington South, officially launched his re-election campaign at the Gateway, Warrington on Saturday (9th November). In keeping with his inclusive approach as the MP for Warrington South, his launch was attended by over 80 local supporters from across the whole constituency.
Prior to his election in 2017, Faisal promised to be the most accessible MP Warrington South has ever had. In the last two years, he has handled over 10,000 pieces of casework on behalf of constituents; held 300 constituency surgeries; attended 400 over public meetings, events, school visits, visits to businesses and community organisations. He has placed this accessibility and hard work at the centre of his re-election campaign.
In the last election, Faisal demonstrated his wide and popular appeal by polling the highest vote for any candidate in the history of Warrington South, taking the seat from the sitting Tory MP.
After nearly a decade of Conservative Government, the Labour Party are proposing radical, transformative policies to tackle the social deprivation and economic stagnation engineered by nine years of Tory misrule.
Faisal Rashid said:
“Representing the people of Warrington South for these last two years has been the honour of my life. Bring able to stand up for local people in parliament has only strengthened my commitment to fighting for our town.
“Almost a decade of Tory austerity has decimated our communities. In Warrington, we have had years of underinvestment and outright dishonesty from this Government. Parts of our hospital are over 100 years old. Our local foodbank is doubling its size. Local transport links are costly and unfit for purpose. The Tories have presided over a declining and divided country. It’s time for real change.
“Warrington desperately needs a Labour Government. Vote Labour to rebuild our communities, tackle the climate emergency, boost local businesses and bring our country back together again.”
