Dean Russell MP My Plan for Watford

See Dean's ambitious plan for Watford, including his campaigns to secure funding for Watford General Hospital, ending homelessness, safer streets and training for a thousand mental health first aiders.

My Plan For Watford

In the run-up to the election on the 12th December 2019, I campaigned on many issues set out as 'My Plan'. Since the election I have expanded upon these campaigning areas to ensure I deliver on the priorities important to constituents across Watford.

The COVID pandemic meant some priorities became even more important.  such as my mental health first aid training ambitions through to securing the funding for Watford General Hospital. 

Of course, we got Brexit done but there is always more to do. So since becoming elected I have listened and worked alongside many in the community to understand your priorities. That includes working with my team to handle, assess and complete over 11,000 constituency cases in little over 18months.

I want to hear your views so 'My Plan' becomes 'Our Plan' as we emerge from lockdown. I am working hard to deliver on priorities that matter and to ensure that Watford is strongly represented at government level.

You can read about the campaigns I have been working on for Watford below.
