Standing for Widewater
My name is Richard Aulton and I am the Labour Party Candidate for Adur District Widewater Ward in the May election. I have lived in Lancing since 2007 and as an active Labour Party member have contributed to the joint campaign against the New Monks Farm Development in its proposed form and the closure of Lancing PO.
Prior to retirement I was a DWP staff member and Health and Safety representative. My experience shows people claim benefits for reasons that include redundancy, sickness, child care, elderly care, relocation, unfair dismissal and homelessness. I am opposed to PIP assessments and Universal Credit and believe Food Banks are an indictment of Conservative austerity.
I am standing as Labour Candidate for Lancing's Widewater Ward as I believe Adur District Council should be a more balanced, less Conservative body; representative of needs and issues relevant to Lancing residents struggling to provide for their families while locked in a tightening economic spiral. Labour councillors offer fresh ideas on housing, open spaces and community needs.
Our transparent and energetic policies are aimed at reducing child poverty, avoiding homelessness, eliminating avoidable deaths of the elderly (Adur is a national high spot), improving air quality and planning infrastructure for the next generation.
As an elected Councillor I will represent your issues and opinions to both the Parish and District Council in a positive and ethical manner.
I will support the conservation elements of Widewater and its contribution to wildlife and the local economy and engage with the community with regard to air quality, parking and street maintenance, anti-social behaviour, disruptive neighbours, graffiti and in monitoring the implications and impact of the proposed new building development at New Monks Farm and other redevelopments.
In Sussex the Tory tide is receding while the Labour wave is gathering pace, we offer hope and energy.
Tory policies based on a myth of competency are locally and nationally bankrupt and these local elections provide an opportunity for local voters to express their political preferences to Vote for the Many not the Few!
For the good of Lancing and of United Kingdom Vote Labour, Vote Richard Aulton on 3rd May.
