Derrick and Cath working hard for you in Stainby Hill

Dear Resident

We are delighted to have been selected as Labour Candidates for Stainsby Hill the local elections on May 2nd. This will be a very important election that will greatly affect the level of services available in Thornaby.

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.

There has been much change to be particularly proud of in the town over the last few years, not least with our busy town centre and our excellent trading estate.  Derrick has represented Stainsby Hill ward since 2011 and is joined by Cath.  Both are working hard to communicate with residents for the last three years and together are determined to fight all the way to improve people’s lives and represent and deal with the problems that matter to people in Stainsby Hill ward.

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