In 2015 we want to see Gordon Birtwistle re-elected as MP for Burnley and Padiham. On 21st February we will be holding an Action Day and Launch Party to celebrate the election campaign and welcome all our new volunteers!
Since first being elected in 2010, Gordon Birtwistle has been a strong MP for Burnley and Padiham. After decades of neglect by Labour, Gordon has won millions of pounds worth of investment into the town by government and businesses.
Here are just some of Gordon's achievements in Burnley and Padiham:
- Unemployment fallen by a third, with a 42% drop in youth unemployment
- £9m new Emergency Unit at Burnley General Hospital after Labour closed our A&E
- Over 4,000 more apprentices than in 2010 - apprenticeships on offer have more than doubled
- New University Technical College teaching young people vocational skills, within the new Weavers' Triangle development
- New industrial sites at Burnley Bridge and the former Michelin sites bringing in thousands of new jobs
- April 2015 will see the first direct trains to Manchester from Burnley in over 40 years
Join us on Saturday February 21st to get involved in the campaign!
