Meet the Team - Our Local Election Candidates

There are a total of 18 seats up for election on Thursday 3rd May 2018.  On 3rd May, it comes down to a simple choice. It’s a new council that...

 

With the by-election imminent in Handside, residents have the choice on Thursday 14th December on who to chose to represent them.

Why are we having an election so close to Christmas?

Good question. It's because the current Liberal Democrat candidate is standing down.

But wait, isn't there an election in May?

Yup. There is, and whoever you elect on Thursday 14th December will have to stand for re-election. It's a wasteful election that's costing us all money.

Meet Belinda

 

 

I currently work in mental health nationally and have previously worked for the County Council and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust. I’m active in our community and gearing up to run the London Marathon for Mind. I live here in Handside and, like you, I am proud to call it my home. However, I’m tired of watching the Lib Dems sit idly whilst the Tory council enact policies that cause harm to our community.


It’s outrageous that the Cabinet thinks they can cut our services while increasing their own pay. They ignore our concerns, taking your support for granted and it cannot continue. I promise to be the voice that Handside needs, holding the Conservatives to account, and to challenge them every step of the way.

Belinda's Pledges

 I will listen to you

On day one I will return the cancelled surgeries to Handside and make sure these work for you

I will fight for better services

And resist the unfair and damaging cuts to our public services

I will stand up for safer communities

By working with local services and PCSO’s to raise your issues and make our streets safe

I will be an independent voice

Unlike the Tories you can trust me to always vote in the interest of Handside not simply with the party line

The right choice for Handside

  With the by-election imminent in Handside, residents have the choice on Thursday 14th December on who to chose to represent them. Why are we having an election so close...

Attendance records held by Hatfield Town Council have revealed appalling attendance levels by Conservative members of the Council.

Since May 2017, Conservative opposition Councillors have attended just 39% of meetings with one prominent Conservative Councillor attending just two of the 11 meetings they were scheduled to attend.

Oliver Price, Labour’s Candidate for the Hatfield East by election on 23rd November said 

It’s outrageous that after the public put their faith in them, they can’t find the time to do the job they were elected for. They’re supposed to be an opposition but how do they even know what’s going on if they don’t turn up?

Labour Borough Councillor Kieran Thorpe said

As an opposition member of the borough Council, I’m interested how the Tories go about being in opposition. I was shocked to hear that it’s common for none of them turn up to meetings at all!

Residents of the Hatfield East Ward face a November polling day because of the prolonged absence of an ex-Councillor, it's clear that all the Conservatives have to offer the people of Hatfield is a failure to turn up for work.

Hatfield deserves better. On 23rd November, use your vote wisely and put your faith in Oliver Price who will work hard for you.
