An honour to be elected
3:32pm Thursday 7th June 2012 in Letters
TO all those residents of Poulton North, it has been an exciting few months on the campaign trail and I’d like to thank everyone who supported me.
It’s a huge honour to have been elected as your councillor and I am determined to stand for everyone in Poulton North, regardless of who they voted for.
I already have plenty of casework I have picked up on the campaign trail and there are a few big projects being worked on to make our community better. But as always if you have any issues or concerns pick up the phone or send me an e-mail.
Our community faces real challenges from cuts to the police and family tax credits, to creating more affordable housing and dealing with unemployment.
These challenges aren’t made any easier by the Tory-Lib Dem Government’s cuts to council funding.
As promised, I will put my five-point plan into action immediately while tackling the issues I picked up along my campaign leading up to the elections.
Yes there was a national shift towards Labour in the local elections but here in Poulton North our victory was based on local issues and how we as your Labour team have, and will continue, to work hard for you to get things done.
I will fight to get the best deal for our community and I will be your voice in these tough times. It’s a big challenge but one that I’m looking forward to tackling as your councillor.
