Our Labour Candidate for West Dorset – Lee Rhodes

Lee says “I grew up in Tottenham, north London and left school at the age of 17. I worked in various factory jobs until the recession of the early nineties which led to a spell of unemployment. I took this opportunity to re-skill. Office work followed until in 1997 I started working in accountancy. I have worked in this sector ever since, becoming an Accounting Technician.”

“I joined the Labour party in 2010 after the General Election and formation of the coalition government. I have supported many Labour campaigns in the past 7 years. I stood in local elections twice for Labour in the Dorchester West ward, in both 2011 and 2015 when I narrowly missed being elected. I am also a member of the GMB union and a supporter of their role in improving working people’s lives. I feel strongly about social justice and want to see a better, more equal society. I would love to see free, quality adult education made available. This would allow working people to improve their own lives in life long learning.”
