    Dear Elector,

    Most people are sick of professional politicia


    and so am I. You don't need another

    careerist, a party hack or

    some new arrival from London.

    I hope you want an MP who has lived in this

    community for more than a few months, who k


    its problems and who will campaign with loca


    people to make things better.

    As your MP, I would take only the average wa


    for the area. I will vote against everything tha


    makes ordinary people poorer and rich peopl


    richer.I won't be grovelling fo

    r a junior post in

    Parliament, or taking money from lobbyists or

    business.I'm a socialist, brought

    up and still living in the

    constituency. Please don't vote for me if you

    want a

    Blue, Yellow or Pink Tory who's looking for a

    cushy career.

    Yours sincerely,

    Rob Griffiths
