Kerry Pollard, former MP, St Albans

July 10th, 2018

I have known and admired Rachel Burgin for some years. We both stood as Parliamentary Candidates in adjacent constituencies – me in St Albans and Rachel in Hitchin & Harpenden – we worked as a very close and active team, she was tireless and imaginative in what we jointly campaigned on and how we organised our canvassing. I had more to gain as I had been the MP for St Albans – she was exceptionally generous. Later on I stood as candidate for Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner – Rachel as ever was the first in line to help, guide and support. Rachel is Labour through and through a good friend, brilliant campaigner – I cannot speak too highly of her.
