The local elections take place tomorrow, and I’m asking for your support. I’m proud of my record and proud of what I’ve achieved for Quinton and Harborne:
- I’ve delivered protection from traveller camps for all of our local parks and green spaces.
- I’ve fought against mobile phone masts – not just for the sake of it, but when they would be unsightly or pose an unnecessary risk – and I’ve been successful in two out of three campaigns.
- I’ve worked hard to resist closures of the front desks at Quinton Road West and Rose Road police stations. Eight more Officers have just been relocated to Quinton Road West.
- I’ve tackled the problem of late-opening off-licences in the area and the antisocial problems associated with them. Two applications were withdrawn after I organised petitions against them.
- And I’m not afraid to stand up to my own Council, for example about problems with refuse collections or plans to build houses on the Martineau Centre’s playing fields, if I believe it’s in the best interests of local people.
There’s still more to do, and I’d love the opportunity to keep working hard for Quinton and Harborne. If I’m re-elected:
- I will make sure that the investigation I demanded into Quinton and Harborne’s rubbish collections is completed and see that the findings are implemented – fully.
- I will fight for restrictions on antisocial drinking on local streets, where there is clear support from residents.
- I will continue to work hard to make sure that Quinton and Harborne gets its fair share of the tax we’re paying.
- I will stand up to the Council, whichever party is in charge, to safeguard the Martineau Centre and its playing fields.
- I will argue for another Council Tax freeze.
Please use your vote to give Quinton and Harborne a bright future.
Polling stations are open from 7am until 10pm (not the other way round as a small number of my leaflets recently claimed!)
