A track record counts

The Conservative Candidate team with 4 zero balloons to represent 4 more year of 0% Council Tax rises

So the election campaign is in full swing, other meetings now cancelled and we are all on the campaign trail. Of course I go out canvassing when I can both in my own patch and across the Eastern Region outside of elections but somehow it’s different when election time comes round. If you’re not a councillor, activist or politician its hard to explain what I am talking about but there is a strange moment when you move from being a Councillor to a candidate, that moment when the campaign, the next leaflet, the returns to the office become the reason you get up in the morning probably having had dreamt about it in your sleep, it sort of takes your thoughts processes over.

Last week the Conservative group of Candidates launched our Manifesto, months in the making from workshop sessions, to group meetings, to checking out with officers that it is all financially sound and deliverable.

Over the past 4 years we have reorganised FHDC, created a truly joint officer team with St. Edmundsbury Borough Council, halved the number of staff and saved millions in the back office costs which, whilst absorbing the Government grant reductions, we have improved services and frozen the District Council element of the Council tax for 5 years, alongside the Conservative controlled County Council who have done the same.

In our Manifesto we have promised to delivery 0% council tax over the next 4 year terms for the whole of the term which will make 9 years without a rise, thus protecting your hard earned money, and at the same time continued to delivery quality services to our residents.

So along with a strong Conservative national message of securing the future and finishing the job of getting this country’s finances on a sound footing after the debacle of the last Labour Government, the message is simple – Vote Conservative, nationally and locally.
