    Hi, Thanks for my poster.

    I’m aware that tomorrow is the last day of the campaign, and wondered if you could tell me where i might get a glimpse of Jeremy speaking in the country?

    Hello I’m writing to enquire who our local candidate is we have had no information delivered through our letter box we have no idea of what they stand for in our area regarding local issues.

    We are thinking of voting voting Labour but feel it’s pretty poor that no information has been made available in our area.

    Hello I have a point I’d like to raise with you, how comes when you hear people talk about brexit they say the people have voted but correct me if im wrong but wasn’t it something like 51% to leave and 49% to stay anyway my point is it was close nearly half the country wanted to stay in Europe so it doesn’t sound right to say the people have voted to leave when it was so close. In the olden days this would be a cause for civil was and still would be in some countries.

    So why don’t I ever hear about how close it was and shouldn’t that warrant a revote as nearly half the country wanted to remain in Europe as I did.

    I always vote labour and im very happy that Jeremy Corbin is in charge as to me he represents the traditional values the party were founded on.

    Thanks for reading my message and I pray that the labour party wins the election.

    Yours sincerely Keith turner

    I have am issues I care about that I’m curious to know Southend Labours stance on. The current state of the rental market which favours landlords and estate agents rights over tenants. Admin fees are extreme with the up front cost of renting a property sometimes 4 times higher than that the rent, this is especially true of the cheaper properties on the market.

    What is the local labour party’s policy as regards the (rumoured) downgrading of SUH A&E? Essex overall will have a 500m deficit in 5 years. Why should SUH A&E helpo balance the books? Southend wants CITY status, has the airport, has thousands of tourists and hosts water sports. WHO in Essex needs to keep a 24/7 A&E? SOUTHEND

    Who are the Labour candidates in Southend for the 2017 General Election? Will Southend Labour be considering a progressive alliance as both seats are such safe Tory seats? Unfortunately I will be out of the country until after the election (in Canada) but I will be voting in Southend East Rochford. If you have candidates I feel I could support I could volunteer from here. I am not currently a member of the Labour Party, I live in SS1.

    Hello Dave Norman. I don’t know if you received my card back then, but I wanted to make sure you got a big big thank you. Since you helped me get a move I have mostly stayed out of hospital for a few years now. I still struggle everyday but thanks to you I am alive to do it. I would have jumped,there is no doubt about it. I just thank god there are people like you, who are in a position to help people, that are genuinely concerned. Many thanks and all the best sincerely

    Hi, I asked my councillor Matt Softly for help on 20/1/2016. The problem is that Genesis Housings contractors, Kier Group PLC, their IT system doesn’t talk to Genesis Housing’s IT system which means that vulnerable tenants like me cant book repairs as vulnerable tenants. Kier have told me in January this year that this problem is widespread regarding vulnerable tenants and Genesis have informed me last year in Aug 2015 that Kier would try to resolve this ,but as I say in Jan 2016 this was still an issue when Kier would not book a new repair that I need because their IT system still doesn’t reflect what is on Genesis Housings IT system . I am concerned not only for myself but for others like myself who might be left without the help they are entitled to in potential emergencies.

    Councillor Soflty told me in Jan this year that he would try to resolve this with Genesis , I emailed him last week to ask how things were progressing but have not heard back.

    What you doing to tackle the homeless on your door step? I was talking to few of them.I thought charity started at home. Have you ever took time to speak to any of them to find out there storey, why there on the street. Because some times its not there fault of there Owen, it could happen to you, or any one in your family. Like your brother your daughter or nephew how would you feel if this happens. Some of them haven’t slept in a bed for months or even years, why do you think some of them turn to drink, and end up being depressed or end in prison. Because they are frightened, in fear of some one might rob them or kill them on the street. I live locally and i feel very sad and concerned, things have to change to help them and support them more to find homes for them. Be fore the coldest winter comes.

    Hi, I don’t see any info about local party meetings in the Calendar section of the website and having rejoined the party recently I’m keen to find out about local Labour activity.

    Please let me know meeting dates.

    I notice that you have a position as vice chair of the Traffic and Parking working Party. I am trying to find out the outcome of a the review into the parking situation in Beach Avenue, Leigh on sea. I am sure you are well aware of the problem of computer parking in this road. I read in the local paper some time ago, after the latest attempt by the residents committee to push for restrictions, that a full review of the situation would be conducted. Please can you let me know if this has been completed and if so what the outcome was? I have tried contacting a couple of local MP’s and had no response.

    Kind regards, Mrs Susan Cains.

    I have always supported and voted for Labour but I am rather lost and confused as to the fact that not enough has been said about education and teachers! I’m a teacher myself and I’m watching good teachers leave teaching term by term… I don’t blame them!! Teaching has become a paperwork activity and the hours I work literally take over my life. I get to work at 7.30-7.45 am and on average leave at 7.30-8pm. My other half will tell me to leave earlier but it’s just not possible with the shear amount of work I have. Apart from personal reasons and work load I have seen the Tories damage my students future and confidence. I work in a challenging area in Essex, where I work very hard to make my students see the value of education. We used to be able to enter our students twice for core exams under Labour and not be ‘marked down’ for it in our data. This allowed my students who were having a difficult time or who made mistakes a second chance, it allowed my students the opportunity to take some exams in year 10 so they didn’t have so much stress and clustered exams in year 11. Now you can say, ‘well that’s how it was when we were kids’ but it doesn’t make it the best system! Or what’s best for my kids! I would like to know what changes are being proposed. I’m a teacher because I care about, not just my subject but about each and every child I teach, have taught and will teach in the years to come. I’m a teacher in this school because I know I make a difference each and every day, because these students are the salt of the earth, because I know that If I can inspire even 3/4 of my year group to go on to further education, find their dream job or join an apprenticeship then I have done my job! I work in an area where many of my students parents don’t work which is not an easy life! It’s hard having 300 students in a year group but my school has organised its own careers advice worker as it’s not offered in our area anymore. All this said education is a big issue which affects us all and I really feel no one has discussed it to the leave it deserves.
