Your Labour Candidate - Haywards Heath Franklands

TOM MARTYN

District Council Candidate

I have lived in Haywards Heath for 13 years, having moved here from Burgess Hill. I was inspired to become involved in local politics after hearing the socialist policies outlined by Jeremy Corbyn, including in particular the nationalisation of our railways. As a commuter to London, like many of us, I have suffered the appalling services of Southern and Thameslink, with journeys to and from work becoming increasingly stressful and financially draining'

It is easy to see the hold that the Tories have in the local area and become despondent but I think it’s incredibly important that they are brought to account and that everyone has the opportunity to vote for the Party they believe in. My wife and I are both strong Labour Party supporters and believe Labour are able to provide a better future for this generation, and those that will come after it. If elected, I will work to ensure Councillors make decisions that help and benefit the local community, particularly those in need of help, including the young and the vulnerable, whose voices are as important as everyone else’s.

Vote Thursday 2nd May - don’t forget your poll card!

Time for change

The District and Town Councils are dominated by Conservatives. Electing Labour councillors will be a positive change for Haywards Heath. Only Labour has a vision that will make Mid Sussex a better place to live and work. Your Labour Councillors will:

A VOTE FOR LABOUR IS A VOTE TO:

Stand up to speculative developers

Demand high building standards that include renewable energy

Create more affordable housing

Be more transparent about how council decisions are made

Bring back truly representative local planning committees

Put the environment and green space above profit

Balance the needs of business with the interests of the community
