Following this year’s budget I attended the MIPIM international festival in France. I was joined by Council Leaders from across the country. I did so because this event is an opportunity to attract more businesses, jobs and investors to our Borough. We should always be on the look out for new opportunities, new jobs and new investment for the area.
The Liberal Democrats however took a different view. They would rather see the Borough fail than put in the work to ensure that it succeeds. For the Liberal Democrats it is easier to put the Borough and its residents down than to improve the area in which we live. Every year the Liberals were in office was a year that they failed residents. They chose laziness and mismanagement over working towards a better Borough. Rather than looking for new opportunities, the Liberals are choosing to attack our local area and run it into the mud.
We will not make their mistakes. Your Conservative Councillors are hard at work to ensure that the Borough is able to attract more businesses, more jobs and has an improved infrastructure. This includes improving schools and increasing school places, improving care services, better roads, better parking and safer streets. We are doing this while safeguarding the Borough’s heritage.
