PLEASE VOTE FOR MARK PHILLIPS IN GIPPING WARD. THIS IS PART OF THE WIDER CHANTRY COUNTY DIVISION, SO PLESE ALSO VOTE FOR NADIA CENCI AND NATHAN WILSON
Mark previously worked at the former Harris Bacon company off Hadleigh Road, together with another role on the Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate in his summer break from university (where he did Religious Studies) and more recently at TWAM - a missionary organisation.
His brother is a Conservative Borough Councillor elsewhere in Ipswich, so Mark completely understands the importance of standing up for local residents and his enthusiasm and dedication has led him to stand in Gipping Ward for the second time
Much of Gipping Ward has felt left behind with your Labour councillors not giving it the attention it deserves.
Mark's priorities are:
HELPING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE
Our children have had a difficult year with Covid. We will work with the local churches, schools and community groups to offer new opportunities and activities for them and prepare for life after school, and enable them to explore jobs and education.
HELPING OUR OLDER RESIDENTS
We want our older people to feel safe and be part of their community as we get out and about again, so we will work locally to enable residents to continue being active as long as possible and continue meeting other people.
TACKLING DRUGS AND ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
Safety and the wellbeing of residents is our top priority. Many residents’ lives have been blighted by the drug problems and other anti social behaviour. If elected, Mark will work with the police and council teams responsible to find solutions to this issue.
