The popular local resident Claire Levy is contesting the St Mary’s West Ward seat on the Beverley Town Council by-election this Thursday 12 March 2020 following a recent resignation.
She told HU17 that she is standing for the first time as a local council candidate because she believes passionately that Beverley Town Council, a parish council with limited powers and responsibilities, needs its 14 councillors to make the best decisions for the people of Beverley without compromise and political posturing.
Claire Levy, a resident in St Mary’s West, said:
“It’s time to put Beverley First! I’ve decided to stand as an independent candidate because I believe it’s in the best interests of Beverley. I want to do what is right for the people of this ward without compromise or political posturing.
“The Town Council does a good job with limited human and financial resources. With just 14 Town Councillors it’s vital we work together and not split along party lines at a Parish level on the Town Council. In other words to put Beverley before politics.
“I’m a resident of this ward and I’ve decided to stand for election. I believe I have the maturity and experience to make a difference. I’m a ‘can do’ person. I roll my sleeves up and get stuck in. I would certainly do that if elected to represent St Mary’s West Ward, by living up to the Mission and Aim of the Town Council itself in order to put Beverley first.”
Beverley Town Council’s published Objective is “To improve the quality of life of the residents of Beverley by promoting the best interests of the town for the betterment of the local community.”
Claire Levy added:
“By working together with a common purpose we can create pride and prosperity for all local people. I would appreciate and respect the support of constituents and pledge to give them a strong voice on the Town Council to represent the very best interests of the whole community.”
Claire Levy says she wants to represent St Mary’s West Ward on Beverley Town Council to:
- Provide enhanced services to maintain and improve a clean, safe and secure Town
- Create and promote an attractive place for residents, visitors and shoppers
- Work with business to safeguard and attract jobs for local people
- Get behind events which benefit the whole community
- Influence ERYC effectively on planning recommendations and issues that affect Beverley
- Support local life-enhancing projects, particularly for the most vulnerable in our area
