Helen is standing to be elected to Northamptonshire County Council to represent the Desborough Division
Helen is your Labour Party Candidate for Desborough Division
My name is Helen and I am the Labour Candidate for the Desborough Division in the County Council elections to be held on May 4th 2017.
I have two small children and have lived in the area for a number of years. I have management experience in public services and previously held public office as a City Councillor prior to moving to Desborough.
I care deeply about our public services and the effects of ongoing reforms which generally means more and more cuts. As a mother I have an interest in the chances afforded to our children and young people in education and employment. Care of the elderly is also close to my heart having an older family member who lives locally.
As a wife, mother and daughter I have a huge personal investment in the success of our community. I am passionate to play my part in protecting and improving all areas of our lives that our County Council has responsibility for.
It’s time for change. Local people will remember when we had Labour Councillors like Tony Allen and David Coe on the County Council speaking up for Desborough and its surrounding villages. They worked hard to ensure that we received our fair share of resources. Now we are expected to pay an extra tax if we want anything doing.
Labour is campaigning hard to make Northamptonshire a better place to live and work. At a time when many people are suffering greatly because of cuts implemented by the Tory Government and Tory County Council, Labour is working to make our area better.
Our pledges to you:
- Labour will rebuild Adult Social Care Services.
- Labour will improve our pavements and roads.
- Labour will improve our failing Children’s Services.
- Labour will help and support local businesses.
- Labour will put people at the heart of decision-making.
