Fiona Derbyshire has been selected as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for the York Outer constituency at the next General Election.
Born and bred in York, Fiona is a councillor on York City Council and Labour’s housing spokesperson. She currently works as a school business manager in York and has held senior public sector roles in housing and planning. Fiona has fought for local people on housing and planning matters.
Speaking after the selection, Fiona Derbyshire said:
“It is an incredible honour to be selected by local party members to be Labour’s candidate here in York Outer at the next general election.
“The Tories are failing to find answers for the big issues affecting York and the country. Lurching from self-made crisis to self-made crisis is not government. We need a government that will tackle the crisis in our NHS and adult social care, get to grips with the issues that matter to local people and ensure we have an economy that works for the many, not the few.
“People in York Outer deserve an MP who will protect their jobs and the services they value and fight for a fair deal in Parliament.”
