Tom Coles for Fratton Ward
I moved to Portsmouth with my family eight years ago. Since then, I have seen vital public services in the city slashed by Liberal Democrat and Conservative run Council administrations. As a parent, I feel the effects of these cuts every day. I believe there’s a good chance you feel the same.
The good news is, these cuts are not always necessary. Decisions can be made differently. It is not too late to change. In fact, 5th May 2016 is the perfect time to vote for a change here in Fratton.
I am already actively working for city, as Chair of the Labour Party in Portsea West. Right now, I am campaigning to protect our Sure Start centres from cuts, and create more jobs.
Because I live in Fratton, I’m in regular contact with fellow residents. Your neighbours have told me about a range of issues that affect them every day:
- Parking – I want to see a full, independent review to solve this messy problem
- Litter – I want to work with Council offers to find better ways of cleaning up our streets
- Dog fouling – I want stronger enforcement of the rules, plus more access to red bins
If I’m elected, I’ll work hard to help Fratton become a prosperous, safe and happy community.
Have a look at my video here and I hope I can count on your vote on 5th May.
