Stephen Burke is Labour’s candidate for North Norfolk in the General Election. He is the local candidate in the race, and the only one capable of standing up for the many, and against the Conservatives.
Stephen, who lives in Happisburgh, is active involved in improving health, housing, care and support for older people in North Norfolk. He is on the governing body of the NHS in North Norfolk and on the board of Victory Housing Trust, Age UK Norfolk, North Norfolk Community Transport and Norfolk Family Mediation Service. He has been chief executive of two national care charities and now runs the Good Care Guide and the think tank United for All Ages.
He enjoys walking his dogs on the beach, running and swimming at Happisburgh, where he lives with his wife, Denise. They recently became grandparents.
As well as ensuring a Labour government stands up for the many, Stephen has his own priorities for North Norfolk which include investing in coastal protection, ensuring universal broadband and mobile phone coverage for all in the area, and making North Norfolk a great place to live and work for all generations.

Stephen says: “The choice at this election is clear. I am the only candidate who campaigned week in, week out to remain in Europe. Labour in North Norfolk was strongly opposed to Brexit. We are the only party who can get the best deal for Britain, for the many not the few.”
“The Tories backed by the LibDems have been cutting our local NHS, schools, police, care and council services since 2010. Now the Tories are threatening the state pension. Only Labour can oppose the Tories locally and nationally.”
“Local people don’t trust the Tories and they have been let down by the LibDems. It’s time for a change in North Norfolk. I ask voters to judge our MP on his actions, not his words – he regularly says one thing and does another, as he did on Europe when he abstained in the Parliamentary vote on the key Article 50 Bill.”
On June 8th you’ll either be voting for a Labour government for the many, or a Conservative for the privileged few. Only Labour will oppose the Tories.
