Rhiannon Meades has been selected as Labour’s candidate for the Mid Bedfordshire Constituency. She was also the candidate in the 2017 general election, when she increased the Labour vote by over 12%.
Rhiannon, who lives in Harlington, is an actor who works in film theatre and commercials, a Labour Party activist, and a Mum. She is active in her community and played a role in the Bedfordshire Rail Access Network.
Originally from Wales, Rhiannon grew up in a strong Labour household, but became particularly politically engaged when she moved to Mid Bedfordshire. She said:
“I’m so proud to be re-selected to be the candidate here in Mid Bedfordshire. This is the most important election of my lifetime.
“We face a climate crisis, a Tory-made Brexit crisis, and the results of years of grinding austerity. We need a Labour Government to unite our country and stop the march to the right.”
Rhiannon added that she is looking forward to engaging with Mid Bedfordshire voters now, and during the next election campaign.
