Elections 2017: Stapleford and Broxtowe Central Labour will ‘put health and social care first’ says candidate

Lisa Clarke

Residents of Stapleford and Broxtowe Central should vote for the Labour Party in order to protect our local services, the party’s local candidate has told West Bridgford Wire.

In 2009-2013, the Conservatives ran Nottinghamshire on a policy of cuts, closures and redundancies, and left the region with a deficit of £154 million.

The Labour Party have continued to deliver on their promises including building extra care housing for elderly residents and invest in our children centres and youth services.

Labour candidate for Stapleford and Broxtowe Central, Lisa Clarke, told us;

“Take the local election on May 4th; your local authority now has HUGE responsibility for some of your most important services – from education to libraries, from children’s social services to care of the elderly in the community. All of it now has to be provided and funded locally.

“Which is why I have now put myself forward for Nottinghamshire County Council.

“As an NHS nurse, I know how important social care is to all of us, to our families and to our local hospital. I’ve seen what the Conservatives do to the NHS and I don’t want to see what they will do to our community care and other vital services in Nottingham. I’ve spent 25 years caring for people and I work really hard. You can trust me and Labour to put health and social care first.”
