Louise and Javed working hard for you in Parkfield and Oxbridge
It has been our privilege to represent the whole of our community as your local councillors.
These are difficult days for us all as we’ve seen Conservative Government cuts severely damage local services, and residents have seen household bills go up while their pay stays the same. There are fewer council staff cleaning our streets and gardening in our parks, and we have lost 500 police officers in Cleveland too.
However that doesn’t mean we should give in to despair and simply give up fighting for the things that matter. We’ve listened hard and will continue to focus on your priorities; safety, crime and anti-social behaviour, clean streets and alleys, making sure there is plenty for young people to do, keeping our parks green and lovely, tackling speeding traffic, getting our new estates adopted and tackling rogue landlords.
We are keen to push on with improvement for our area, so if you want to support us in that battle, please vote Labour and Co-operative, we can’t do it without you.
Very best wishes,
Louise Baldock and Mohammed Javed
