Evaline and Mick working hard for you in Billingham East
We are delighted to have been selected as your Labour candidates for Billingham East Ward in May’s Council elections.
It has been our privilege to represent your area for many years and we hope you will again support us to continue the work we do on behalf of your community.
As you councillors we have made sure you have been kept up to date with our work with our regular Doorstep newsletter; hold two surgeries a month to help local residents; and are accessible to our community by attending Residents’ Groups across the ward.
These are difficult days for our community. Due to Tory cuts, we are seeing our Council forced to make cuts to its services; and our region unfairly hit by austerity.
That’s why we need a strong Labour Council dedicated to maintaining the best possible services and putting forward a positive vision and agenda for the entire Stockton-on-Tees Borough; that puts the wellbeing of our children and older people first; and defends you against Tory cuts.
Please vote for us on 2nd May—thank you.

The communities I represent with Mick are central to everything I have done as your Labour Councillor since 2011 always aiming to do the right thing whether dealing with the problems local individuals have, to ensuring the Council delivers its services from social care to emptying bins.
I build on that with regular advice surgeries, attendance at residents’ meetings and raising the issues that matter to you.
Government cuts to services have cost us many jobs and services but I am determined that I continue to do the things that matter to residents and you get the support you need.
I’m proud to represent the community in which I live, for more than 20 years. I’ve tried to ensure the voices of local people are always heard – whether they have raised an individual problem or wanted to see service improvements in our area.
Regular surgeries, residents meetings and other activities have ensured I’ve kept abreast of the issues that matter to you – and I promise more of the same.
It hasn’t been easy for the Council to deliver everything our residents need due to Tory Government austerity but we need to keep fighting for our own. I’ll do that.
