THE Liberal Democrats say they are listening to Warrington residents about issues that matter – and they have set out stalls to show it.
Street stalls were held in Appleton, Stockton Heath and Lymm over the weekend.
Chairman of Warrington Liberal Democrats Cllr Ryan Bate said: “We are campaigning for ‘a greener, cleaner, safer, Warrington’. We want a more caring Warrington as the pandemic has shown benefits of communities coming together.
“Residents know we work hard all year round and keep them informed through regular FOCUS newsletters. They are telling us that their priorities are
•Protecting the Green Belt and improving green spaces
•More clean air initiatives•Greener more regular public transport
•Combatting climate change
•Quicker and more effective pothole and road repairs
•More genuinely affordable and appropriate housing for all ages.
“They welcome our determination to improve the scrutiny and transparency of Council spending and investment decisions.”
Cllr Bob Barr, leader of the Liberal Democrats on Warrington Council added: “We want to run a positive election campaign concentrating on policies and identifying where parties agree and can work together for the good of the town. Unfortunately, abuse and disinformation on social media and a lack of co-operation between local political leaders is making this difficult. It is reported that the MP for Warrington South and the Leader of the Council have not met since the General Election.
“This is bad for the town.”
