Nottinghamshire deserves better

The County Council runs most of the services you come into contact every day, from roads & public transport through social care for the old & disabled to education for young people. All are controlled through the County Council so making sure you get the right person to represent you on the Council is important.

Over the years both Labour & the Conservatives have had turns at running the County Council yet nothing much changes here in Worksop. Our local secondary schools are amongst the worst in the County, our public transport needs investment (even getting a decent Bus Station only happened after the local Lib Dems started to campaign and shamed the other parties into action), the residents parking scheme is expensive and badly run. In truth you deserve better, you deserve a County Council that is run for the benefit of the people who elected it and you deserve to be represented by a County Councillor who takes time to talk to you and listens to what you have to save. In short a Liberal Democrat Council & a Liberal Democrat Councillor.

Over the coming months, we will be laying out our plans for how we would run the County but one promise we will make to the people of Worksop is that, if elected, a Liberal Democrat Councillor won't just be holding regular surgeries and wait for you to come to them, they will continue to be out on the streets, meeting you and listening to you, to find out what you think about the local issues. You can follow us on Facebook at Lib Dems for Nottinghamshire 2013.

We look forward to working with you and for you to make Nottinghamshire & Worksop better

I have lived in Worksop for over 20 years & brought up 3 children here. I have seen it through good times & bad times and still think it is a good place to live. Yes there are problems but so do all small towns. Now my children are grown up I have the time to serve my community which is why I am spending much of my spare time as a campaigner for the local Lib Dems
