“My name is Andrew Herridge and I’m running to be your Councillor as I believe in the future of our area. I moved here over 3 years ago, currently living in Great Park, and I have faced the same issues as you every day. From the improvements desperately needed in public transport links to the disappointing performance of the consortium on Great Park, I know there is a lot more that can be done.
I’ve worked in the public service sector for 9 years and am committed to providing the best service possible to help improve the lives of those in my area. The last 10 years have seen massive cuts to public funding with this Government letting the people downtime and time again. Over the last year, this has become considerably more difficult for all of us, but I am glad of the work the council has been doing in partnership with the local NHS trust and other organisations to support people in need across the city. I would like to see that cooperation continue working into the future, past the pandemic, and will work hard to see that it does.”
