I am committed to this community and am working hard to be the next MP for North West Leicestershire Terri Eynon
Dr Terri (as her patients used to call her) is a retired local GP. She is the County Councillor for Coalville North, District Councillor for Hugglescote St Mary’s and the current Labour Group Leader at County Hall. She is also a community activist, community radio presenter and volunteer reader at Coalville Library.
Terri has a strong track record of campaigns. Working with colleagues at County and District she called for both Councils to declare a Climate Emergency and, with her colleagues, is now following up on the policy changes both Councils need to make if this is to be more than warm words.
Terri is committed to disability rights. She worked with the ‘Close the Loop’ campaign to challenge the gap in Special Educational Needs transport which leaves 16-18 year olds with an Education Health and Care Plan, that mandates them to go to school, with no reasonable means of getting there.
Terri works closely with our Union colleagues. She takes advice from local Union leaders on issues in public services, including our NHS and Fire Service. At County Hall she is working with Unison to support differently-abled staff to challenge an absence management policy that makes no provision for disability leave.
