I am a retired Headteacher who lives locally. I was also a magistrate in both Fareham and Portsmouth for 24 years. I’m involved with charity work and I know the area well.
I am keen to be elected to serve on our local council to promote the principles, values and beliefs of the Labour Party. Locally our communities continue to suffer from the maladministration of the Pandemic crisis. This is exacerbated by years of austerity under the Tories which have left our local structures denied proper support. The evidence is all around us. It includes:
- The scandal of foodbanks which have to provide food for the poor including children in one of the most prosperous areas of the nation
- The lack of proper local transport for the 50% of the population without access to a private car
- The focus on allowing developers to build housing which affords them the greatest profit rather than seeking to provide homes for everyone
Of course these and the other problems can only be successfully addressed within a national context. Therefore a vote for Labour in Winchester can help to secure a national mood that the government is not addressing the real needs of people.
Vote for David Picton-Jones the Labour Party Candidate for the Denmead Ward in the Winchester City Council Election.
Vote for Tony Bunday the Labour and Co-operative Party Candidate for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Commissioner.
