This week North Norfolk District Council has formally accepted Denise Burke’s nomination papers for the General Election.
The Labour Parliamentary Candidate for North Norfolk was backed by 10 women of all ages from across the constituency on her nomination papers, and they were handed to the local authority and accepted earlier this week.
Mrs Burke has set the political agenda over the past four years in North Norfolk with high-profile campaigns on the ambulance service, broadband and phone signal, coastal erosion and flood defences, public transport, and local jobs.
Denise’s key pledges include fighting for affordable housing, local jobs that pay a minimum wage, improving care and health services, affordable transport and childcare, boosting education and opportunities for young people, protecting our coast and environment, and promoting renewable energy. She also pledges to fight fracking.
The Labour Party will also stand 48 candidates at this year’s District Council elections.
