Meet Rebecca, Your Local Labour Candidate for Redditch
My name is Rebecca Jenkins. I’m a local school teacher, brought up in Redditch and proud to be your labour party prospective parliamentary candidate for redditch.
I was selected to represent Redditch in May 2018 and I am very honoured to represent the town I grew up in and continue to be part of. I have been a History/ RE teacher for the last 12 years and have worked as a teacher across the West Midlands region.
I grew up in Redditch and lived in North Oakenshaw, attending Woodrow First School followed by Walkwood Middle School & studied for GCSEs at Alcester High School (now the Academy). After receiving my degree in History from the University of Wolverhampton, PGCE at Bath Spa University I moved back to Redditch and have lived in Headless Cross, Astwood Bank, Matchborough East and Studley.
As a target seat, winning in Redditch is key to winning the General Election. We need to win here in order to secure a Labour Government. Only with a Labour Government can we reverse the damage caused by years of ideological austerity and damaging policies, such as the introduction of universal credit and constant cuts to the alexandra hospital.
Redditch truly deserves better and I hope as a local woman with roots, friends and family here I can campaign directly for you and be your voice in Westminster. I would put Redditch first in everything I do. Redditch is a great place to live but it has a lot of potential that isn’t being realised and I know many people feel left behind. Things could be different and I would like to be the one to help us move forward and prosper. My hope is to bring opportunity, security, wealth and optimism to Redditch and its residents
