"Local people value having a local person representing them. In a time when people are cynical about politics I think it’s important to show that their Labour candidate is one of their neighbours. A neighbour who uses the same buses, libraries and parks as they do.
"I am involved with the community and last year organised a street party for local residents for the Queens 90th birthday. Everyone had a great day, we had games and to finish the day a tug of war that everyone enjoyed. Things like this help to build community spirit.
"It’s because I live here that I want to make a difference. Even the small things like fixing the potholes, repairing the streetlights and cleaning up litter are important to me. I love living in Shoebury but it can be better. I hope to represent the people of Shoeburyness and make sure we keep our area a green, safe and tidy place to live.
"I’m fighting to make things better for residents. Things have been tough, with the Tory Government cutting away at public services. A local councillor can help the most vulnerable get through these difficult times. More importantly, more Labour councillors can make sure the axe doesn’t fall on vital services in our town. I fully supported the efforts of our Labour colleagues on the council who protected care homes and libraries.
"I hope that you will feel able to support me in this election."
