Lib Dems will stop the Tories wasting our money

May 24, 2009 12:57 PM

Liberal Democrats are gearing up to wrest control from the Conservatives at the forthcoming East Sussex County Council elections.

The Liberal Democrats are the main opposition party on the Council and are opposing Tory waste.

Lib Dem candidate for Old Hastings & Tressell Stuart Murphy says,

"The Tories at County Hall have lost the plot. They are wasting our hard earned cash on spin and environmental hazards. The incinerator planned for Newhaven will cost £140 million. We want a greener County, and schools that are fit for purpose, as well as only sensible and essential roadworks."

"Local Lib Dem councillors will put a stop to positively dangerous highways 'improvements' like the Frederick Road scheme," says Stuart.

Lib Dem candidates in the Hastings & St Leonards divisions are as follows:

Anne Gallop (Ashdown & Conquest); Anne Scott (Baird & Ore); Roger Weeden (Castle & Braybrooke); Oliver Maloney (Central St Leonards & Gensing); Christine Benner (Hollington & Wishing Tree); Tricia Kennelly (Maze Hill & West St Leonards); Chris Beaumont (St Helens & Silverhill); Stuart Murphy (Old Hastings & Tressell).

Our candidates for Brede Valley & Marsham and Rye & Eastern Rother are, respectively, Derek Greenup and John Smith.

Nick Perry, the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye said, "I am particularly pleased with the calibre of our candidates; that we are fielding a diverse team, and that it is also gender-balanced.

"We are making sure that there is a real choice on offer for Hastings and St Leonards' residents in these County elections."
