Rachael Schneider Ross - Labour
Rachael has lived and worked in the Devizes area for over 25 years. She is a working Mum and runs a small business specialising in equality and leadership.
She is a Trustee of local charity Opendoors.
Rachael came to politics through local campaigning, working with parents and the community to challenge the closure of Oxenwood and Braeside outdoor education centres.
Rachael believes the country needs clear leadership to tackle the climate crisis and the inequality we face as a country and locally. She believes Labour’s position on Brexit is the only sensible and democratic approach; to bring the decision to leave or remain in the EU back to the people for a final say.
She would start her work as our MP by making sure there is investment in key local public services, bringing home Labour’s plans for schools, our military personnel, policing and youth services.
Our NHS and social care is broken and the most vulnerable in our communities are unprotected. Ten years of austerity caused this. Labour will repair it.
Rachael said: “Labour will invest in our country to grow the economy just as we did in Atlee’s post war government; investing in affordable green housing and in our bus and rail network, to connect our towns and villages, reduce isolation and help reach vital targets to reduce carbon emissions.
Her aim is to help overcome fractured national divisions, whilst bringing Labour’s bold vision for change and our ‘green new deal’ to everyone throughout our constituency.
