David Taylor, Hemel Hempstead’s Labour Parliamentary candidate, has shared his priorities should he be elected as the area’s new MP.
Mike Penning, current MP for Hemel Hempstead, announced last year that he would be standing down at the next general election.
David represented Hemel Hempstead in Youth Parliament back in 2001 and is now excited to have the opportunity to do so in Westminster.
He stood as a candidate in Adeyfield East in the local elections last year and came within 34 votes of unseating the former Conservative Leader of Dacorum Borough Council.
David is a former advisor to Gordon Brown and currently works for a charity helping people in some of the poorest parts of the world earn a fair wage.
Speaking to HEMELnews, David said: “I am delighted to have been selected as Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for Hemel Hempstead.
“All of my family are from Hemel, and I want to do everything I can to help people here struggling with the Tory cost-of-living crisis. As your MP, that would be my first priority.
“I have already met with a wide range of charities and community groups working on the frontline to identify ways I can support their brilliant work. I will join them in rolling up my sleeves and getting stuck into the community response to the crisis.
“Hemel is one of Labour’s battleground seats, and we’ll be fighting hard for every vote, to win your trust, and deliver for our town.”
