Why are you a member of the Labour Party?
Labour is the party of solidarity. We work to improve the lives of everyone, not just the rich few. That’s why I joined.
Why is it important that Broxbourne has more Labour councillors and a Labour MP?
I have noticed in Broxbourne that many people vote according to the performance of a party or the national government. That’s fine but local issues are very important too and too often in Bury Green and Broxbourne generally, the local Tory councillors know nothing about the ward, the area, or even what’s going on in the council chamber. They just take votes for granted here.
My ward, Bury Green, especially has been neglected by the Council for years. They have promised people things that they simply haven’t delivered. It really is time for a change this time.
I urge the people of Bury Green to vote Labour and to get their issues properly addressed this time.
