Greg Keane - Labour Candidate for Shoeburyness

I work as a senior charge nurse at Southend Hospital Accident & Emergency Department. I see first-hand the pressure on the NHS, and how the policies of the Conservative government are damaging patient care. If elected as a councillor I can use my experience in the NHS to effectively press for improvements in local health services. Labour councillors supported council budget amendments that would have seen public investment going into health centres - the Tories voted against.

Going around Shoeburyness I can see that crime, and recent incidents of violent crime in particular, are a massive concern. Police resources in Shoeburyness are simply not enough to deal with the problems we experience. We cannot let the Tories who are responsible for cutting more than 700 Police Officers in Essex get away with it. Southend Council cannot replace the Police cut by the Conservatives, but Labour Councillors have a plan for a new enforcement service which will be a visible reassurance and deterrent, whilst dealing with the low-level anti-social behaviour that the Police are not able to deal with.

If you elect me as your councillor I will stay in touch with local residents and hold regular advice surgeries, as Labour Councillors in other parts of Southend already do.

    Hi Greg, Hope you are well. I know that it is not your area but I am wondering if you have any interest in this or can put me in touch with the labour member here ? I have contacted the Green Party as well. Here is my letter to the local residents
    To: Residents North/Central Avenue/The Grove.
    Hi I have been in contact with the local council about starting a volunteer group to clear the rubbish in the alleyway and make it into a managed wildlife area and I have had a very positive response.
    I have started a Facebook Group. The Facebook group name is Horse Way Nature Walk. So please join even if you can’t volunteer so you can see the pictures of our progress. You will be most welcome.

    If you are interested in volunteering, tools, expertise please let us know

    I will also provide light refreshments etc in my house or garden after the clearing, and who knows an occasional barbie !
    It will be hard work but please do not let that turn you off. Do what you can without overdoing it.
    There will be many problems to overcome but hopefully it will be fun too! It would be nice to see the alleyway cleared.
