General Election 2019

General Election 2019

Stephen Rice is standing as Labour’s candidate for the Harwich and North Essex constituency in the next general election.

Stephen was born in London and has lived in West Mersea for nearly thirty years, he has two grown-up children.

He has had a varied career in industry, commerce and the arts and has a strong Trade Union background. He has a strong community focus and has worked with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, The Diocese of Chelmsford and served on the RNLI Inshore lifeboat for fourteen years.

Every year, Stephen volunteers with ‘Festival Friends’, a voluntary organisation that enables adults with learning disabilities to enjoy holidays with their friends.

Speaking after his selection, Stephen said:

“Successive Conservative and coalition governments have overseen the biggest cuts to our public services in a generation. The NHS, social care and our schools are struggling under the weight of cuts and massive cuts to police budgets are putting our safety at risk.”

“People here in Harwich and North Essex need a representative that will put them first. The sitting MP is beatable and a kinder, people-centred Labour government is electable. I will work hard with my constituency team between now and the election to let people know this general election will be a choice between the Labour Party that will stand up for the many or the Conservative and Unionist Party that looks after the privileged few.”
