Richard Streatfeild for Sevenoaks
How do you do?
How can I help you?
I am asking because I would like to help make your lives better as your representative on Kent County Council from next May. Hard choices are being made now; harder ones lie ahead.
So, I'm keen to understand what local issues concern you, your family, your livelihood, your health and our children's education.
I want to work WITH YOU to fight for what you want and believe.
Whether it's the lack of local testing in our fight against Covid 19, the appalling Special Educational Needs provision within our schools impacting every child, or the lack of action in saving our environment.
Like many of us, I am so frustrated with today's politics. Those in power do not listen. Many social and educational policies divide us. There is no emphasis on fairness. Together we can change things for the better, but ONLY the Liberal Democrats can achieve this in Sevenoaks. The Liberal Democrats have a strong record of campaigning and achieving at a local level, across the country. We want to work with you - our citizens - to mend broken trust in the government.
WE NEED A STRONGER VOICE AT KENT COUNTY COUNCIL TO:
PUT THE ENVIRONMENT FIRST...
For the sake of our young people, to help Sevenoaks achieve zero carbon emissions, make our streets safer and increase green spaces in our Town.
CREATE A ROBUST, EFFECTIVE, LOCALLY LED TEST & TRACE SYSTEM...
Which ensures everyone with symptoms can get a test and receive results within 24 hours. We must protect our most vulnerable and, at the same time, correct the serious underfunding in social care in Kent.
INCREASE KENT'S SPENDING ON EDUCATION WHICH IS BELOW THE NATIONAL AVERAGE...
And address the Special Educational Needs Provision which is so bad it has been placed under special measures. This lack of support impacts every child's education.
ADDRESS THE SEVERE POST BREXIT IMPACT ON KENT'S TRANSPORT SYSTEM AND ECONOMY...
