Dan Carden to stand for Liverpool Walton

Local trade unionist and campaigner Dan Carden has been selected as Labour's candidate to be the next MP for Walton.




Following his selection Dan said,


"Following Steve Rotheram’s fantastic victory in the Metro Mayor election, I am delighted to be Liverpool Walton’s Labour candidate for parliament.


"I’m a proud Scouser who wants to see the very best for our City and the people of north Liverpool. I was born, raised, and went to school here, my mum has worked in the NHS for over 40 years and my dad was a Liverpool dock worker for 25 years.


"I am from a different generation with different experiences and I’m ambitious for what the Labour Party can do for our people, for the economy and for society as a whole. As your MP, I would work day and night to make sure that our people achieve – that our schools are properly funded, our young people are supported to reach their potential, our hospitals function, our homes are affordable, our skills are valued and our vulnerable are cared for.


"Too many people have lost hope in the power of politics to bring about change - I haven’t. I want to be a community focused MP that supports the Labour Party as it fights for a better society. For the many, not the few.


"I know how to fight and win for people, advocating for constituents as a caseworker and working with shop stewards and reps in the workplace. I am determined to be the champion Liverpool Walton deserves.


"It would be an honour to have your support, so PLEASE VOTE LABOUR on Thursday 8 June."
