PLEASE VOTE FOR DEBBIE RICHARDS IN WESTGATE WARD
I am currently serving as a County Councillor for St Margaret’s and Westgate Division in Ipswich. I’ve lived in Ipswich for 15 years and joined the Ipswich Conservatives in 2016 around the time of Brexit because I believed in it so strongly.
I’m standing as a Borough Councillor because I’ve got to know the people and the issues that come up every time I knock on doors – drug dealing in broad daylight, speeding on residential streets and problems finding anywhere to park. I have a good relationship with Police in Westgate and will continue to work with them to force drug dealers out of the area.
There’s dangerous speeding on residential streets throughout the area. I will continue working with the Highways Authority to put forward traffic calming measures (but no speed bumps I promise!).
The narrow streets of Westgate make residential parking an everyday problem. I am campaigning for Churches and Community Centres to rent out part of their parking space to local residents – a win, win solution for everyone.
