Elections to East Sussex County Council are being held on Thursday 4th May.
Two people will be elected to represent Crowborough – one to serve “Crowborough North & Jarvis Brook” and another for “Crowborough South & St Johns”. CrowboroughLife has invited each of the candidates to send a short statement about themselves and explain why they would like you consider voting for them. This is the election address from Sylvia Tidy.
I have been proud to be the voice of Crowborough Residents at ESCC for the last four years and if re-elected would continue to fight for speed restrictions in residential roads,swifter and better pothole filling and road resurfacing.
One million pounds has been allocated every year for the next 4 years to improve road gullies and drainage to keep water off the roads.
Ensure our elderly residents get the best possible community care to look after them in their own homes,and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
The education of our children is vitally important and also the care of vulnerable children who through circumstances beyond their control may need to be looked after within the care system.
The lack of police presence is causing concern and although not a CC responsibility,I will join with residents in lobbying for a visible presence.
Four candidates are standing for each seat (click to find-out about them).
