Billingham West

Katie and Paul working hard for you in Billingham West

Dear Resident

We are delighted to have been selected as your Labour candidates for Billingham West ward. As residents of Billingham West, we are determined to get the best deal for our community, Billingham and Stockton-on-Tees as a whole.

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.
