I was born and Educated in Rotherham where my working life after leaving school initially started within the Iron & Steel Industry where I eventually became involved in the interviewing and employing of personnel. This led to my progressing, due to my love of The World, to becoming a Travel Agent and this vocation became the main part of my working life for nearly 30 years. I have lived in Chapeltown along with my wife and family for over 40 years.
I became an elected Ecclesfield Parish Councillor for UKIP in the Burncross Ward in May 2015. Since then I have become particularly concerned at the amount of rate payers money that is being overspent/wasted at a whim by Sheffield City Council and Partnership(s).
I am standing as a City Council candidate for UKIP in East Ecclesfield this May and I am looking for YOUR vote in assisting Pauline Andrews, should she be elected again, in carrying on the sterling work she is already doing on your behalf.
If I am elected I give YOU my solemn promise that I will leave no stone unturned when it comes to objecting to YOUR money being squandered. Yes YOUR money – something this City Council seems to forget OR ignore.
I am, also, concerned about road safety in all aspects but particularly in and around our schools.
The road surfaces in Ecclesfield and the City are a DISGRACE!!!!!! Poor quality patchwork just compounds the pothole situation even further and the cost of yellow marker paint itself must exceed the cost of some of the work needed. This will be one of my concerns should I be elected.
It is on record that I strongly objected to the chopping down of 800 year old woodland at Junction 35 for the proposed building of the new Motorway Service Area .The traffic problems that I can envisage developing up there are mind boggling. We shall see!
Finally, I am asking for YOUR vote to help me and the other UKIP City Councillors regain some credibility for YOUR hard earned money that you pay in rates to be BETTER spent for a BETTER Ecclesfield and a BETTER future for YOU.
