I am Tim Murray standing in the Uckfield North Ward, Town Council by-election, on Thursday July 12th.
Your vote really matters, so I would ask you to consider very carefully who you support.
I am local, having lived on Manor Park in the North of Uckfield since we moved here with our then young children more than 20 years ago. Our children attended the local primary school and Uckfield Community Technical College.
I have always been interested in the local community. I was a school governor for Manor Primary School for 12 years, and in that time represented the school on County wide forums for governors.
At elections, it can be better to vote for the person, that you think will work hardest to represent your views locally. You deserve to be represented by someone, living at the heart of the community, who has the experience of community service, the experience and skills of business and life, who will listen and work for you,
I am a regular commuter to London where I work for a consultancy advising business and public bodies on purchasing. Through my job I have also travelled widely throughout the UK, Europe, China and America. Being home every day means I am always here to help.
I have been a member of the Liberal Democrat Party for 21 years. I believe that the Open, Tolerant and United values of the Party, and our belief in equal opportunity for everyone means we work for all the people in our community, young and old.
Our Town Council should not be dominated by Party or other groups, sometimes with their own agenda. The limited powers of the council means it is important to be able to build networks with community groups, district and county councillors and businesses to support our Town.
Working together to achieve what is best for our community in Uckfield should be the common ambition for all Councillors.
PLEASE BE AWARE – PLEASE READ
