Promoted by and on behalf of Geoff Walsh, of 11 Market Place, Pontefract, WF8 1AG Printed by PrintForms, Cinema House, Doncaster Road, Wakefield, WF1 5HL
ACTION for you ALL YEAR ROUND Over the last four years I have been working with residents across the community to see that their issues are taken seriously. Some in Wakefield see me as a thorn in their sides, but the needs of people must come first. Given the chance I intend to keep pushing to get things done. Working together we have been able to resolve many problems, but there is more to do. Help me to help you, with your support on the 6th May I can do this. Every vote really does count.
Geoff has taken action to get the Council to look again at Town End
Geoff will work to make sure services like recycling are accessible
In 2008 Wakefield’s Labour Council signed the Government’s Housing Growth Points Scheme. Pontefract has been volunteered by Labour to have up to 10% of the 20,000 extra houses that the Government wishes to see built. We will oppose development that fails to account for the needs of our population for good infrastructure, quality development and protection of our green spaces. I will fight to stop these ill-considered big developments.
YOUR PRIORITIES ARE MY PRIORITIES
