REDDITCH Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Rachel Maclean, has launched her re-election campaign.

Supporters joined Mrs Maclean at the launch of her general election campaign on Saturday (June 1) at the Arrow Valley Country Park.

Mrs Maclean says she is standing for re-election on her record of delivering on the promises she’s made.

She said: “Redditch and the Villages is my home, and it has been the honour of my life to serve our wonderful constituency in Parliament for the past seven years.

“I’ve been humbled and grateful for the support I’ve received so far from local residents across the community.

“We’ve achieved a lot together, but there’s more to do.

“It’s only with your help that I can continue to deliver real results such as returning maternity and children’s services, just as we worked together to return the Garden Suite Chemotherapy Unit.

“Others can often over complicate politics, but for me it’s really quite simple: get on, do the job and deliver results – and that’s how I’ve always operated.”

Mrs Maclean has vowed to continue building on her record of delivering results, and that is the message she will be taking across the constituency, including the villages of Wychbold, Upton Warren, Harvington and Norton which are joining the constituency following the boundary review.

“I will continue to fight to return a maternity and children’s service to the Alex – and I’m the only candidate in this election with a Long-Term Plan to achieve this,” she added.

“I will ensure the £16.6 million Town Deal I secured for Redditch regenerates the town centre and as many residents as possible feel the benefits of the £5 million to level up arts and culture.

“And from Wychbold to Harvington and from Feckenham to Hanbury, I will continue to champion our villages and our rural communities.

“I know illegal migration is a top concern too, which is why I voted for the toughest ever legislation to stop the boats.

“It would be an honour to be re-elected on July 4 and I hope to speak to as many residents as possible over the next five weeks.”
