I'm delighted to have been selected by local people to be your Conservative candidate and moved to Coventry three days after selection. 

The thing I hear most when I'm out door knocking is that people want a fresh start- and an MP who cares enough about Coventry to live here. If I'm lucky enough to have your support, I will have my home in Coventry NW and will hold weekly surgeries so that I can be your voice- both here in Coventry and in Westminster.

Resham Kotecha - Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Coventry North West

 

Resham’s 6 Point Plan for Coventry North West

1. Brexit - We need to make a success of Brexit and ensure Coventry NW thrives. I will fight for our manufacturing and automotive industries to be at the forefront of our Prime Minister’s negotiations and get the best deal for Coventry North West.

2. Green Belt - We need to challenge the local plan. I will listen to constituent’s views and campaign to get funding from the Regional Development Agency so we can build on all the brownfield sites first. Once greenbelt is gone, it is gone forever.

3. Coventry Culture Bid - Coventry deserves recognition and I will work closely with the council, the other Coventry MPs and the Mayor to promote our bid.

4. Jobs - I want everyone in Coventry North West to have a stable job. I will work to attract firms to Coventry and will host jobs fairs keep unemployment low.

5. Business Investment - It is important to me to ensure that Coventry North West benefits from business investment. I will use my platform as an MP to generate business investment attracting businesses to the area.

6. Crime - I want to support the local police force in investigating crime and will encourage residents in their local neighbourhood watch schemes. I want residents of Coventry North West to feel safe in their local neighbourhoods.
