Rachael’s family name is Schneider. Her professional and political name is Ross. As the polling sheet uses her family name, and to avoid any confusion for the electorate, she will be using both names for the campaign: Rachael Schneider Ross.
Rachael said “It has a European and modern ring to it which suits me well. The only names we really need to remember are Labour and Rachael!”

Rachael Schneider Ross is Devizes Constituency’s choice for Labour
Devizes Constituency Labour Party members selected Rachael Ross as their candidate for the next Parliamentary election at a meeting held on Saturday 26th October.
Rachael lives locally in the Pewsey Vale with her husband, Rob, and runs an award winning leadership and consultancy business.
Rachael has lived and worked in the Devizes area for over 25 years, bringing up her two grown up children and has been active in her local village community over that period. She is a Trustee of local Devizes charity Opendoors.
Rachael is Chair of the Devizes Constituency Labour Party and she has worked with local parents to help organise a cross party campaign to challenge the closure of Oxenwood and Braeside outdoor education centres.
Rachael said: “Working with parents to challenge the closures was very inspiring and shows how people power can bring about real change”.
Devizes Labour was demonstrating on the streets of Devizes on Saturday 31st. Part of a nationwide protest to stop the “very British coup” - as John McDonnell calls it - as Boris Johnson attempts to close Parliament down, determined to crash the UK out of the EU on 31st October.
My sense from the people we chatted to on our way from the Market Place to deliver a letter to Clare Perry MP, was that they are very angry - and very worried - about this assault on our democracy. A rainbow of cross party support turned out for the protest which was organised by Devizes 4 EU.
Ultimately though, this goes beyond leave or remain, beyond deal or no deal: we have to challenge Government to uphold democracy, radically rethink how we do politics and bring in a Labour government to get started as quickly as possible on rebuilding Britain to put people and planet before profit.
