Thank you very much to Whaley Bridge & Blackbrook Labour Party for selecting me as your candidate for the County Council by-election on 13th February.
So many cuts are being pushed through Derbyshire County Council, including to our Volunteer services, Whaley Bridge Library, our buses, nurseries and social care. And so many issues I’ve been working on to take forward – road safety, cycle routes, support for children with special needs, flooding and tackling climate change.
It’s never been a Labour seat, but it would enable me to continue to stand up for at least part of the area I love, so I’ll give it my best shot.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
