Bob & Eileen working hard for you in Norton South

Dear Resident

We are delighted to have been selected as your Labour candidates for Norton South in May’s Council elections, and we hope that you will vote for us so that we can continue to represent your interests on the Council.

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.

Over the last four years Norton South has seen great change with the new houses at Norton Park nearing completion, and with the house building started on the former Sarek Joinery site, we have seen the area improved tremendously. Much more still needs to be done and Bob and Eileen will be your voice in tough times and make things happen

Please vote for us on 2nd May—thank you.

Bob Cook and Eileen Johnson
