General Election 2019: North West Cambridgeshire - Labour Cathy Cordiner-Achenbach
Cathy is a qualified teacher who has worked with children aged four to 19 including those with special educational needs.
She has fostered 20 children working with them, their families and statutory agencies to ensure that they receive the support they need to move forward positively in their lives.
Cathy is co-founder and director of an award winning community interest company which supports people back into training and employment.
As well as being an active School Governor, Cathy is also chairman of a pre-school and firmly committed to ensuring children receive the highest quality education and care.
As an experienced councillor Cathy works hard to support residents with wide ranging areas of their life, particularly those experiencing challenges due to cuts in services, the negative effects on women born in the 1950s affected by state pension inequality and the devastating impacts of Universal Credit and PIP assessments on people’s lives.
Cathy says: “This Tory government has overseen the biggest cuts to our public services in a generation.
"The NHS and social care is in crisis, our schools are struggling under the weight of the budget cuts and cuts to police budgets are putting our safety at risk.”
“I have seen first hand the devastating impact that Tory austerity has had on people’s lives, schools, the NHS and social care.
“People here in North West Cambridgeshire need a representative that will put them first. I am asking you to vote for me and for a party committed to making real, positive change for the lives of millions.
"This general election will be a choice between a Labour Party that will stand up for the many or a Conservative Party that only looks after the privileged few.”
