PLEASE VOTE FOR BOTH YOUR CONSERVATIVE BOROUGH AND COUNTY CANDIDATES, LEE AND PAUL, AND TIM PASSMORE, YOUR PCC CANDIDATE.
PAUL WEST FOR BIXLEY DIVISION.
I grew up just outside Ipswich but have lived and worked in the town for the last thirty years. It is a great place to live as we are just an hour from London and have a vibrant Waterfront area. I was elected the County Councillor for the Bixley Division in a by-election in May 2016.
I first joined the Conservative Party because I believe in helping people achieve their ambitions by creating the environment to allow people to thrive in their personal life and career. Improved health and economic wellbeing go hand in hand.
When it comes to Ipswich, the balancing act between providing more homes for a growing population whilst services can keep up with the growth is a difficult one. However, I am committed to supporting improved infrastructure for all forms of transport such as overhauling the Copdock Interchange and making sure the bus and rail terminal in the town centre work in a joined up way together.
I am just as committed to seeing improved services for mental health and wellbeing, something that is even more important now given the experiences of many people during the COVID lockdowns. We can also help each other's mental health by making sure that we are always kind to each other!
LEE REYNOLDS FOR BIXLEY WARD
Hello, my name is Lee and I have previously served as a Conservative Councillor for St Margaret's Ward. Sadly though our experienced Bixley Councillor, John Carnall is stepping down this May so I hope to be elected in his place. I am looking forward to meeting more Bixley residents over the coming months and indeed years, all being well. Should you have any local issues then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
- Protecting our grass verges where possible, as some roads in our Bixley Ward have parking bans which has helped restore their original grass appearance.
- To support any local community groups that would like to apply for funding from Ipswich Borough Council. Feel free to get in touch should you have any suggestions.
- Supporting a vibrant town centre as our current Labour ran Council has a real lack of ideas that is holding us back.
Please remember this May you will have three votes so you can really make your opinion count. Whilst I will be your Borough candidate, Paul West is your County candidate and we are also hoping that Tim Passmore will be re-elected as Suffolk's Police & Crime Commissioner.
