I am very honoured to be selected to stand for the Teignouth division on Devon County Council. My priority is to create happier and more prosperous Teignmouth - to give more responsibility and resources to local people to unleash their energy and talent. Our community is packed with talented people that want to make a difference, but all too often they are marginalised by council bureaucracy or tribal party politics. I am a Liberal Democrat, and it would be less than honest to hide my opinions: however people come before party every time.
“The Liberal Democrats are ready and keen to regain control of Teignbridge Council on 2nd May. We have a strong team of able, experienced and diverse candidates standing in almost every ward.” Lib Dem Leader Gordon Hook told the media. Launching the Teignbridge Liberal Democrat manifesto, Gordon said: “we demonstrate our forward-thinking and responsible, costed programme, which will produce a CONNECTED, PROTECTED and GREEN COUNCIL FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.” The Liberal Democrat priorities for Teignbridge are: * Genuinely affordable homes to buy or to rent for local people and tougher negotiations with developers; * working closely with Police to tackle anti-social behaviour; * getting serious about environmental protection providing clean streets, better recycling and fighting climate change; * a business-friendly attitude, encouraging entrepreneurs; * open and transparent decision-making, brought closer to residents; and, * valuing and protecting our public services. We will work
