A blog by Sam Mathieson, Labour Candidate for Soham North
I believe in listening to and empowering people. As a Councillor I will bring my experience from the Police, serving in the RAF and working in retail.
I met Mayor Dr Nik Johnson recently. He puts community, co-operation and compassion at the heart of everything he does. I will do the same, plus the fourth C of commitment: staying the course and delivering results.
Involving the whole community in spending the Market Towns funds
The Council has £800,000 to spend on regenerating Soham. It’s a golden opportunity to think about the future of our High Street. I want a proper say for the community.
Asking young people what services they need
I want to hear directly from young people. I plan to set up a forum so that every young person here has the chance to help influence Soham’s future.
Involving everyone in taking climate action
East Cambs Council must bring forward its net zero carbon date to 2030. There are so many questions to answer if we are to achieve it. The more heads we can put together on this, the better the outcome.
