It’s time our city gets the change it needs

On polling day, 8 June, Cllr Stephen Morgan, Labour’s candidate for Portsmouth South writes to fellow local people about the change our great city needs


Dear fellow resident,

Being from here, I know how great our city can be.

Over the years, Portsmouth has had many achievements. I remember getting the day off school for the Tour de France and going up Spinnaker Tower for the first time. I remember the sense of pride you always get when a naval ship returns to our dockyard, or seeing the fantastic service we get from staff who dedicate their lives to the NHS and our schools. People all across Portsmouth work day in, day out, to make our city unique.

But like any city, our city has its challenges too.

Too many patients are waiting to be seen by our health services. Too many families are struggling to make ends meet. Too many schools are seeing cuts to their budgets. Too many of our loved ones are not getting the care they need.

I’m not a politician parachuted in from elsewhere for a career in Westminster. I’m the local candidate who cares about our city and with a plan to meet those challenges head on.

The choice at this election is clear in Portsmouth South. Its a straight choice between the Tories and Labour.

Elect me as your MP today – Thursday 8 June – and I’ll always stand up for you and our city. Its time Portsmouth gets the change our great city needs.
