On 4th May you can vote for Waltham Abbey’s representative on Essex County Council.
With cuts to local services, public transport, care services, the Police, youth services and numerous other local issues we need people on the County Council who will represent the interests of Waltham Abbey’s residents, small businesses and our future.
This is NOT a general election – that’s coming on 8th June – and it’s not about Brexit. This is a local election for someone who knows and lives in the area and will work hard for you.
If elected I will continue to work for Waltham Abbey locally but will be in a much better position to work with Greens and others on Essex County Council to:
- Reverse changes to our council tips which have led to increased fly tipping
- Save our Fire Station
- Secure a pedestrian crossing on Honey Lane/Woodridden Hill — helping people cross and reducing deer fatalities
- Improve our public transport
- Protect our health and care services
- Increase social and genuinely affordable housing
- Protect our environment and clean air
With the government imposing 84% cuts on Essex County Council by 2020 no one councillor can promise to achieve all of those things, no matter what they may say in a leaflet. However, we’ve a much better chance with more Greens representing us on our county council.
Do you know how your County Councillor has voted on your behalf? Do they tell you?
I’ll make sure that, wherever possible, every decision I make on the County Council is publicly available, along with the reasons I voted that way.
Vote for somebody who already works hard for Waltham Abbey
I’ve a lot of common ground with Labour and the Liberal Democrats but neither actively work for Waltham Abbey, UKIP are yesterday’s news and the Conservative Party is responsible for the cuts to social care, police, public transport and other essential services we now face.
A vote for me is a vote for a candidate who genuinely, demonstrably cares about Waltham Abbey, our people, our services, our businesses and our environment.
