She was part of the team that was instrumental in the relocation of Barclaycard from London to Northamptonshire which generated local jobs and has worked with young people, helping them find work placements and as an advisor to the University of Northampton.

Commenting, Jill Hope said:

"I'm delighted to have been chosen to stand for election in Corby and East Northamptonshire. Working with the team of local Liberal Democrat councillors I will fight to address the issues and concerns of local people.

"We have already hit the ground running, putting out thousands of surveys, giving us a clear idea of the kinds of things people want us to fight for locally.

"I also want to use this election to set out the good things that Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government are doing for people locally.

"Whether it's the extra Pupil Premium money coming to our schools to help the most disadvantaged children get the best start in life, the biggest ever cash increase in the state pension, or the thousands of workers in Corby and East Northamptonshire who have so far had a £330 tax cut thanks to the Lib Dems.

"Liberal Democrat influence has made this a far better Government for local people than if the Tories were governing alone, and as MP I would make sure we deliver more tax cuts for ordinary people and not for millionaires.

"The people of Corby and East Northamptonshire want a full-time MP who will fight for them and for the things that matter to them. That is what I promise to deliver if they vote for me to be their new MP."

Councillor Chris Stanbra, leader of Corby Liberal Democrats said:

"Jill Hope will make a brilliant MP. She is just what our area needs, a hard-working campaigner who will take up local people's issues big or small."
