Gerry Steinberg MP at the opening of the Durham passport office.
Gerry was also instrumental in helping MacKays Carpets build their spacious modern factory in Langley Moor after outgrowing premises in Gilesgate Moor. There had been a risk of losing the company altogether, but thankfully, due to Gerry's intervention, the long established business stayed and jobs are saved.
Gerry keeps in close contact with the electorate. He has a full time office in the City, and maintains a busy schedule of surgeries around the constituency. Since 1997, he has received nearly four thousand letters seeking help on subjects ranging from fuel bill disputes to tax problems.
In Parliament, Gerry's special interests have been in education and animal welfare. He has been an active member of the Public Accounts Committee where he ensures public money is not wasted.
Gerry is well known for speaking out and fighting for Durham City. He was successful in getting funding for the Millennium development, bringing the new Passport Office to Durham with 500 jobs, and ensuring the relocation of Mackay's Carpet Factory, saving 300 jobs.
Gerry cares about the city and the villages. He will always put Durham first.
