Knowsley Lib Dems’ Message to Prescot & Whiston
Prescot Online invites all candidates and parties standing in Prescot and Whiston to have their say in the run-up to the 5 May local elections.
The local Liberal Democrat candidates write:
These local elections present the best opportunity in years to end Labour’s 100% grip of Knowsley Council. At the moment we have a dictatorship where absolute conformity is demanded. That is why we’ve seen Labour Councillors vote to sell-off Greenbelt land and increase Council Tax. The Labour Councillors are desperately out of touch with local people.
Electing opposition Councillors to stand up for you in the Council chamber is the first step in a real change agenda in Prescot, Whiston and Knowsley Village. The Liberal Democrats stand for community first politics, our members are not whipped into conformity and are allowed to put the community and people’s interest first.
We want local people to be involved in decision making which is why we want to introduce area forums with a budget.
We oppose the Greenbelt sell-off and we are campaigning to reverse the decision. Our beautiful Greenbelt should be protected.
We believe that Town Centre car parking should be free and welcome the Shakespeare North proposals. We want better parking for people visiting the theatre in future.
We have had an brilliant response from people this year telling us online and on the doorstep that they are supporting us. On Thursday 5th May please use your three votes to elect hard working Councillors who put the community before the Council or party. Support the Liberal Democrats and stop the Labour Council voting against your interests.
Thank you for reading.
