John Paul McHugh on behalf of the Community Union

February 1st, 2014

The Community Union is delighted to endorse Rachel Burgin because she so strongly reflects the union’s values. While her politics are rooted in the coal and steel communities of West Cumbria, her career has taken her to different communities across the country. She has adapted to each and actively found ways to serve their needs, galvanising them on local and national issues. She has a talent for understanding the heart of a community and has proved herself to be a genuine grass roots politician. She has a reputation as an outstanding campaigner and an articulate advocate of her values and principles.
