on the issues that matter for local people. In the past
12 months he has campaigned for more jobs and investment
in the local area.

changes to our NHS and has been active in many local campaigns
such as to save children's heart services at Glenfield

Given people are feeling worse off under the current government,
Jon believes much more needs to be done to help local
people with the cost of living.
He has been calling on the government to freeze energy
bills. Jon also knows that childcare costs place a huge
burden on families which is why he wants to see local
mums and dads given more help and support with childcare.
