I have lived in Blyth for more than 20 years. My background includes being CEO of one of the UK’s largest practical environmental charities, so I have an insight into how Government, both local & national, works.
This year, our District & County Councils (both Labour run) have rejected Government grant to help keep the Council Tax you pay down. This means you pay more because the Councils want to play at Party Politics. Lib Dems on the Council would oppose this happening again.
We can’t change everything overnight but a vote for me is a vote for giving power back to local people and for Liberal Democrat commonsense.
