As Leader, I’ve delivered council housing on a scale not seen in decades, balanced budgets annually without frontline cuts—despite the Government taking Crawley’s entire grant, and kicked-off a wave of investment in the town’s facilities and infrastructure.
I’ve worked hard for Crawley because I want the best for our town. Yet, under the Conservatives our local NHS has gone into financial ‘special measures’, headteachers were forced to march on Downing Street to demand the funding they need, and the loss of police officers has resulted in a wave of drugs and violence spilling out into our neighbourhoods and town centre.
I don’t believe that’s what most of us really want for Crawley and that’s why I’m going to keep fighting for a better deal for our town.
With best wishes,
