Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has been appointed as the Regional Campaign Lead for the North West.
This morning, Keir Starmer announced a new project to provide political leadership on all aspects of campaigning in regions across England, Wales and Scotland. The move is part of preparations for the next General Election, which has to take place prior to January 2025.
Gwynne, who also serves as Labour’s Shadow Public Health Minister, will lead for the North West, where he will be supporting the work of Labour colleagues in the region.
Commenting, Andrew Gwynne said:
“I’m absolutely delighted to have been appointed as the Regional Campaign Lead for the North West.
“Communities across the region have been badly let down by this Tory Government. The Conservatives have had 13 years, and what have people got to show for it? Soaring bills, an NHS at breaking point, and a stagnant economy.
“People are crying out for change, and the next Labour Government will deliver that.
“I look forward to working around the clock with brilliant Labour candidates, colleagues and campaigners so that Labour can get on with the job of building a better Britain.”
