Lisa & Steve working hard for you in Norton North

Dear Resident

We are delighted to have been selected as your Labour candidates for Norton North Ward in May’s Council elections, and we hope that you will support us. Sadly, Kathryn Nelson has decided to retire for health reasons, so your Norton North team for the forthcoming election is Lisa Grainge and Steve Nelson.

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.  Despite this your Labour Council has protected weekly bin collections, protected libraries, and set out a positive vision for Norton North and our entire borough.

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.

Lisa Grainge and Steve Nelson
