Sam Dixon Campaign Launch

Labour’s parliamentary candidate for the new Chester North and Neston constituency has officially launched her General Election campaign.

Samantha Dixon served as the Member of Parliament for the City of Chester from December 2022 until the dissolution of Parliament last week following the announcement of a General Election on the 4th July.

In the last 18 months, Samantha has dealt with 9,000 individual cases, put over £430,000 back into peoples’ pockets and tackled issues including housing, transport and sewage dumping in the River Dee.

The City of Chester parliamentary seat, a constituency which was created in 1542, now no longer exists due to boundary changes, with the new Chester North and Neston seat made up of Chester areas north of the river, Neston and Parkgate.

Following her campaign launch on Wednesday evening, Samantha said:

“It has been an honour to represent residents across Chester for the past 18 months, and I am so pleased to stand as Labour’s candidate for the new constituency of Chester North and Neston.

“After 14 years of Conservative decline and mismanagement, our country is in desperate need of change that only a Labour Government can deliver.

“Delivering economic stability, cutting NHS waiting times, setting up Great British Energy and so much more to deliver a decade of national renewal.

“It was fantastic to be joined by so many supporters at the launch of our campaign, without whom none of this would be possible. They are ready for change and so are residents who we speak to on the doorstep.

“It’s time to get out future back. It’s time for change and it’s time to vote Labour.”

Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Councillor for Little Neston, Louise Gittins added:

“I have known Sam throughout her political career, and I couldn’t think of a more dedicated and hardworking person to hopefully be representing Chester North and Neston after the 4th July.

“She’s campaigned prominently for residents during the cost-of-living-crisis, helped with hundreds of housing issues and stood up for local businesses and the local environment including her campaign against water pollution in the River Dee.

“She is passionate about the potential of our local area and wants the best for local residents. She has championed Chester and I know she will do the same for Neston and Parkgate.”

The General Election is taking place on Thursday 4th July with the deadline to register on the 18th June. Postal vote applications will be closing at 5pm on Wednesday 19th June.

Voters are also reminded they must bring photo ID to the polling stations. For anyone who doesn’t have an accepted voter ID, you have until 5pm on Wednesday 26th June to apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate.
