Out on the campaign trail

So as I am out in my Division on the door steps, explaining our Manifesto and how it builds on what people have been saying to our Candidates over the past couple of years. I also encourage people to go and have a look at Labour and the Lib Dems manifesto’s they are worth the worrying read that they are.
Our manifesto is packed full of new ideas as we seek to drive forward reforms to the council to protect Front lien services to the most vulnerable in our communities and help our communities be better places to live. We are ever mindful that its your money not the councils and that making sure we plan for the future of services not just today and must taking account of everything that is told to us by Government for the next 4 years and beyond.
But contrast this with the Corbinista’s who’s manifesto is spend, spend, spend, their financial spokesman has even been quoted in the press that the financial outlook for local Government is getting better. Well maybe it is in Corbyn’s La, La, Land but back in the real world, local government has to be careful with your money not reckless.
Or maybe go and have a read of the Liberals one, over the coming weeks we will see the only the liberals can win here, little yellow leaflets. At the recent Annual Budget debate their Leader could not be bothered to turn up and their deputy leader did not bother to check how long he had to speak so did not even get through reading half the leaders speech. In the 11 years, I have been a Councillor they have never once tabled a budget amendment a shocking performance in February, yet they are out there telling people how committed they are to run Suffolk. Truly, truly scary.
The next few years are going to be challenging but us Conservatives are up for the challenge. Running a great county like Suffolk is an honour and a privilege for whoever you vote for and your vote matters.
You are voting on the careful running of important services like Adult Social Care and how we protect our young people.
You are voting for who can run the budget that truly protect and sustain Front Line services.
You are voting for who can work with our business community to grow our economy and bring higher value jobs and who is best places to deliver on your priorities.
You are voting for the party that respect its your hard earned money and we always do what we can to keep your Council Tax bill as low as is possible.
The Financially Dangerous Labour Party, who when the money runs out will come after yours. The lazy and lacklustre Lib Dews who can’t really be bothered to have a plan. Or a Conservative group who have the passion, enthusiasm and drive to see Suffolk grow and be the best place there is to live, work, raise a family and retire in.
Vote Conservative on May 4th.
