We are looking forwards to a busy and productive New Year. Our team of candidates will be busy canvassing in the lead up to the May elections. Our aim is to ensure that all voters in Staffordshire Moorlands will have the opportunity of giving Labour their support.
The catastrophic Tory policy of austerity creates increasing pressures at a local level. The move to withdraw funding of school crossing patrols across Staffordshire, the marked increase in Food Bank usage linked to a roll out of Universal Credit, and the bed closures in our local hospitals are just three examples of the appalling impact of these discredited policies.
It’s vital that Labour has a strong presence at all levels of local government. A presence that properly represents ordinary local people, that holds the ruling Tories to account and puts forward alternatives that are properly thought out and costed.
Labour – For the Many, Not the Few
