Local elections are just around the corner, and I had another great weekend back in Gedling helping constituents and campaigning hard for Labour.
On Friday I had surgeries, which for those of you that don't know involves seeing constituents and helping with their queries. If you'd like to come and see me in person about a query/problem you are having please do get in touch here.
After that I attended Netherfield and Senior Citizens Tea Party along with Councillors Meredith Lawrence, Nicki Brooks, and Mayor of Gedling Bob Collis. The event was lovely, and a great opportunity to once again meet with and listen to these long-standing constituents.
This picture was taken when I was out campaigning at Arnold Market, where we had great support for Labour Nottingham county council election. It was great to see so many people engaging with us, and another example of a fantastic Labour response from Gedling. Speaking to people we were able to discuss the worries people have with the current Tory government, with the biggest concern raised being over the governments proposed school funding cuts.
As well as the stall in Arnold, I also spent time door knocking in support of Michael Payne and Pauline Allan on the plains estate. There were loads of the same issues coming up from the people I spoke to, and everyone we spoke to was really pleased to see us, and communicate their Labour support for the upcoming elections on May 4th.
This weekend showed an incredible effort from Labour supporters in Gedling. The County Council election will result in either a Labour or Tory run Council so there is a clear choice for everyone to make in this important upcoming election on May 4th. In the next few weeks look out for more Labour pledges building on the excellent work Labour has already done locally despite huge Tory cuts to their funding.
In order to tackle the problems of school funding cuts and more, it is imperative that we push for labour to represent in as many areas as possible, to ensure that our children and our communities do not suffer from Tory austerity.
