Local Elections: John Bird, St Marys Ward

I decided to stand for election in 2003 because I wanted to work for and support the people in the ward where I live.

That desire has not changed  and so I am standing again for election  this year. In addition to my work as your councillor over the past eight years at ,  I am currently Chair of the which has delivered projects such as the and the Bar 600 Celebrations  and am the founder and Chair  of the   which this year celebrates its seventeenth year.

I also chaired the Health Action Group which campaigned  to save hospital services for and am naturally delighted that we are going to have a new hospital for the town, although would have preferred it to have  been built on a different site. I have consistently supported sustainable energy projects on the planning committees of which I am a member, voted against the” massive golden handshake payment”  and have responded to issues which have been brought to my attention by local residents, such as parking, housing, benefits and health related problems, which  are a major part  of my work as your councillor.

There are a number of initiatives which I would press for if I am elected, including refurbishment of , the development of a park at Grovehill and a coach park which is fit for purpose. All of these I believe would be of great benefit to the town.  I would like the opportunity to continue to work to the best of my ability for  you and our town and therefore ask for your support at the forthcoming election on May 5th 2011.
