Five people are standing for the Tiverton and Honiton constituency in the General Election on Thursday, May 7...
A teacher from Honiton, Caroline Koley, (Labour) has been living in the constituency since 1991.
Married with four children and two stepchildren, she teaches RE and philosophy in Taunton, and is also a specialist in Special Educational Needs.
Previously active in many community groups, last year she was co-opted on to Honiton Town Council. Caroline’s key issues are the funding of the NHS and support for hospitals and local businesses.
“I’m very much from a teaching background,” she said. “I feel that MPs should live in their constituency, people should be represented by their own. I believe that Labour’s policies, views and ethics offers Britain a better society. I’m standing for Labour because that’s what I passionately believe in. It’s not about me, it’s about my children, their children and my ageing parents. They would all be better off under Labour.”
