Our town goes to the polls tomorrow – Thursday 2nd May. Unusually for Crawley, every seat on the Borough Council is up for election, giving us the chance to change the future direction of our community.
As I go across town, in addition to the issues raised with me by concerned residents, I have seen for myself that the Borough Council’s current leadership have failed to keep Crawley clean and tidy. Sending out press releases on the subject is no substitute for issuing fines for littering.
Hard-working Crawley Conservative councillors will take pride in our community, and will ensure action against such anti-social behaviour.
Figures released this week show that over 700 Crawley families have been able to realise their dream of home ownership thanks to the Government’s Help to Buy ISA and equity loan initiatives.
This is a contrast to Labour’s record, such as the £1.4 million from the sale of council houses which was meant to be spent on new homes in Crawley but actually wasn’t.
The Council’s leadership have also gone over budget on a botched IT project. Conservative councillors will not lose sight of the fact that Council funds are actually the hard-earned money of local taxpayers.
A vote for local Conservative candidates on Thursday is a vote for a better Crawley.
