Get in touch with Sheena



Sheena King is the mother of a baby boy, a law graduate and has an 11 year career history in air traffic control. She has always considered herself a Socialist and has always been a Labour party supporter. She has been actively involved with Meon Valley Labour Party in recent years as their Trade Unions and Young People Representative and has also been a Parish Councillor in Whiteley, Hampshire.

Sheena stood as a Labour candidate in local elections a number of times in Winchester and was the Meon Valley delegate at conference in 2012. She also undertakes voluntary work, including nature conservation work and the latest as a Gamesmaker at London 2012 Olympic Games.

Sheena says “I   joined the Labour party because I spent the first 17 years of my life under a Tory government, whose values are the opposite of mine. I believe in a society where we look after those that are the weakest and most vulnerable, and where we promote equality and opportunity for all, not just the richest in our society. I believe people should be encouraged to work hard, pay their taxes, and that money should be reinvested to improve our public services. I want to see Britain building again and more affordable homes being created for our growing population. I am a strong believer in our NHS, a system of healthcare that is the envy of the world. I want to see university tuition fees reduced, more funding to improve our state school system and more police on our streets. I want to see an end to badger culling and better enforcement of the fox hunting ban, on the tenth anniversary of the Hunting Act. I want to see a realistic, strongly controlled yet tolerant approach to immigration. I want to support a Labour government in reducing unemployment, making
employers pay decent living wages, and everyone contributing fairly into the income tax system to help make our economy stronger. I believe in nationalisation, not privatisation, and I believe our services and infrastructure should be run in the public’s interests and not those of private
shareholders. ”

“The Labour party are the real alternative to the current government. We firmly believe in equality and social justice and we urge every single Labour party supporter and every disillusioned voter to seriously consider voting Labour at the next general election. I strongly urge the people of Yeovil not to vote tactically this time round. By receiving the true support of hard working people, we have a good chance of substantial y increasing our share of the vote here in Yeovil and that will mean we can make a real difference to improving the quality of everyone’s lives, not just the wealthiest in society. I personally want to hear about what matters to you. I want to represent you and support you, in particular all the young people of Yeovil and all the people who think their vote does not matter and will not make a difference. I want you to know that every person’s vote matters and if everyone puts a cross on their ballot paper in May, we really can make a difference. “
