Redbridge Labour have launched our local election campaign with a pledge card including a freeze on Council Tax, reversing Tory cuts to street cleansing and putting more uniformed officers on the streets.
Announcing the plans outside Redbridge Town Hall with Ilford North Parliamentary Candidate, Wes Streeting and Ilford South MP Mike Gapes, Redbridge Labour Group Leader Cllr Jas Athwal said: “The Tories have been in power since 2002 and after 12 years of failure it is time for change in Redbridge. We’ve been knocking on doors and talking to people intensively during the past two years and we have produced a series of pledges that we know we can deliver. With a £26million black hole left by the Tories, the next Council faces tough choices. Redbridge Labour is ready to serve, by delivering the people’s priorities and tackling the cost of living crisis with a firm but fair approach to the Council’s finances.”
Wes Streeting said: "These pledges reflect the concerns and priorities I've been picking up from residents about the problems we've experienced with the Tory-led Council. They've been in power for more than a decade, so I hope that residents vote for change on May 22nd."
The pledges have been devised following feedback from residents from doorstep and telephone conversations during the past two years, as well as consultation with Labour Party members. Labour activists are now informing residents of our plan for Redbridge by delivering our pledge card to homes across the Borough.
