O’DELL Launch’s Campaign
Labour activist Steven O’Dell has launched his latest political Campaign for the forthcoming County Elections. Steven who has been active for the last twenty one years is standing in the woodditton seat in East Cambridgeshire. Based on his long experience campaigning for his local communities steven has launched five pledges for which he hopes will get him elected to the County Council. These five Pledges are:
To continue to campaign for better public transport services and better cycling facilities. so that congestion is reduced and it helps the less mobile to be active and independent without the reliance of having to use a car to get out and about.
To Defend the local NHS services and to campaign to expand their services. If Elected steven would work with his local surgery so that the cheveley area can have a satellite surgery so that those rural areas can benefit from their own doctors. Also steven would work with the pharmacy in bottisham to expand their service to the same area.
To organize a Business Enterprise Group as he thinks there is a need for business’s to talk to one and another so they can discuss and use best practice to expand and also use the group to help start ups in the area and to help them get funding.
To organize and set up a Councillor Access Group. Steven believes at present there is no accountability to which Councillors have to respond to and steven thinks this would be a group of individuals that would have no connection with parish or district councils. He would if elected invite people from each and every community within the division to a three monthly meeting. Steven continues to pledge to still attend Parish Council meetings and annual parish meetings to give his report.
To Campaign for a Community Improvement Grant. Steven Would like to defend his Community shops and business from going under believing that such a grant would help them survive and therefore help the elderly and those that cannot leave a Community to be able to get their groceries and quite possibly have a chat so they feel less isolated. Also ensuring that those without a car can access basic essentials.
Steven believes that this is an agenda for a growing area and one that everybody can relate to. He is proud of being a member of The Labour Party but also he defends the right that those in Communities just want a modern Community that supports their lifestyle.
Steven who has the ear of Councillor Lewis Herbert who will be the Communities portfolio holder on the combined authority believes that he can get a better deal for woodditton.
