Candidate for Newport Pagnell North and Hanslope Ward
As someone who was born and grew up in Milton Keynes it makes me angry to see the damage being done to our city by this Conservative government. Savage budget cuts worth tens of millions combined with a transfer of power away from local government and into the hands of mega corporations. The result has been thousands of households made homeless and in temporary accommodation, workers turning to food banks, degrading green space, low quality housing development, and a lack of investment in public transport.
I am proud of the work the Labour-led council have done fire fighting this assault on our community. While legally prevented from making proper investment in council housing they have recently managed to get two thirds of our rough sleepers into accommodation, as well as fighting to protect local services for children, the elderly and disabled, and to stop the creeping privatisation and break up of our local NHS. Vote me in as your Councillor and I will continue Labour’s work to protect the most vulnerable in our city and the communities living around it.
