Today is your chance to vote in the Worthing Borough Council elections.
Between 0700 and 2200 today you will have a chance to vote for a fairer and more compassionate Worthing.
Since she was elected last year, Councillor Beccy Cooper has held the Conservative controlled council to account through much improved scrutiny and action such as forcing the council to reconsider their approach to getting money from developers to fun vital social housing. If one Labour councillor can do this, just imagine what several can do?
Please vote for the Labour Candidate in your ward:
These elections are a chance to have your say on eight years of Conservative cuts to public services, failed privatisations and falling living standards.
Tory cuts have savaged vital local services. You and your family can often no longer be sure of getting the support you need.
The Conservatives are promising more of the same.
They are cutting vital services, like the NHS and police, and starving councils of cash. The result is that some – like Conservative-run Northamptonshire - are now effectively bankrupt.
While the Conservative Government is giving tax handouts to the super-rich, its massive cuts to local services mean the rest of us could have to pay more council tax.
Labour will rebuild our communities and transform our country. The Conservatives are holding the country back.
Millions face insecurity at work or in business. Most people’s incomes haven’t kept up with prices.Too many have to rely on debt to keep afloat.
Eight years of reckless Tory austerity and a privatisation obsession have pushed our public services into crisis.
Outsourcing of public services is leading to one scandal after another. And the collapse of private outsourcing companies like Carillion is putting services at further risk.
The NHS, policing and social care are in a state of emergency. Schools across the country face cuts, and class sizes are increasing.
Housebuilding has fallen to its lowest rate since the 1920s and homelessness is rising. Our safety has been put at risk with over 20,000 police officers lost.
Older people are not living with the dignity and comfort they deserve because of Conservative cuts to social care.
But it doesn’t have to be like this.
Labour councils stand up against Tory cuts to protect the services that people rely on. We will put the interests of the people first. Locally and nationally, Labour will invest in people, public services and the industries of the future. We will rebuild communities.
