I feel I have much to offer a Labour-controlled WDC. I have years of working in Industry, and as a self employed small businessman.
This range of experience enables me to have a good overview of what is required as a Councillor. I have tried to bring this knowledge to my work as a Councillor.
The Ward has a widely diverse population with very different needs from the very wealthy, to the extremely poor, with a comfortable middle class in between But they all have demands which are important to them.
Waveney's biggest single issue is the provision of a Third Crossing. and the provision of new jobs and secure employment,as well as more and better housing that can be afforded.
These things are inextricably linked, business can be attracted to Lowestoft, with good infrastructure, and can thrive and provide employment Only Labour can build homes that people can afford My option is social affordable council built homes.
