The Labour Party has selected its candidate for the South Norfolk constituency in next month’s general election.
Danielle Glavin, 39, works for a cancer charity and lives on a smallholding in the county.
The former BBC journalist is passionate about rural and social issues and says she is standing to get a better deal for all people in South Norfolk.
She said: “I am proud to be Labour’s candidate in South Norfolk for June’s general election.
Our county is an amazing place to live but it deserves better. Our rails and roads hold us back. Our NHS, our schools and the services our communities rely on desperately need more help and support.
“People shouldn’t have to live in pain while they wait and wait for operations, our GPs are under too much strain and our headteachers are having to focus on how they can afford to keep schools open five days a week, rather than focusing on how to make learning fun for the students.
“People here need an MP who will put them first and who will speak up for them about the big local issues. I hope, come June 8, they decide I am that person.”
Other confirmed candidates for South Norfolk are Richard Bacon (Conservative) and Catherine Rowett (Green). UKIP and the Liberal Democrats have yet to announce their candidates.
