We’re proud to announce Labour’s candidates in Broadbridge Heath for the local elections taking place on 2nd May. Take a look at what our candidates stand for and please contact us if you have any issues or concerns in the area, here.
Diane: “My name is Diane Burstow. I am a Residential Childcare worker, looking after young people with Autism. I have lived in the Horsham district all of my life. I have two adult children, who live with me due to the lack of truly affordable housing locally. As a Labour councillor, I would be keen to ensure that housing developments are planned with the right mix of social and affordable homes, as well as the infrastructure put in place to serve the local population. Environmental issues are important to me, starting with encouraging more re-cycling and better waste management.”
Cameron: “My name is Cameron McGillivray, I live in Broadbridge Heath on Corsletts Avenue and I’m proud to be selected as a Labour Party candidate in my area alongside a great campaigner, Diane Burstow.
I attended Shelley Primary and Tanbridge House School. I’m incredibly passionate about this village but also deeply concerned about the uncertainties it faces. After years of Tory broken promises on a new school and a lack of real infrastructure in the new housing developments, it’s so important for people to have their say at the local elections.
I have been involved in and led local campaigns such as, introducing a separate food waste collection, urging the crime commissioner for more community police officers in Horsham and being opposed to large housing developments which fail on affordable housing. I have also been the campaign co-ordinator for Horsham Labour for the past two years and have been involved in winning campaigns in places such as Brighton, Crawley, Stoke & Croydon.
I’m a member of GMB, Horsham Football Club supporter, I work as a Video Editor in London and enjoy everything creative in my spare time.”
If you are voting in Broadbridge Heath on May 2nd, you have two votes. Make sure you use both votes for your local Labour candidates. At the last election in Horsham, the Lib Dems came third, behind the Labour & Conservative candidates. A vote for the Lib Dems or any other minor party only risks the chances of the Tories winning here.
