St Helens Borough Labour have today launched the campaign to decide who runs essential services in St Helens for the next four years.
‘A Lot Done. More to do.’, St Helens Borough Labour’s manifesto for the local elections, is available to read at www.sthelenslabour.org/vote2022 and sets out in detail Labour’s record and plans for the borough.
Labour’s David Baines, Leader of St Helens Borough Council, says: “St Helens is a great place, and the local elections on 5th May are vital for the future of the borough. In an all-out election with all 48 seats up for grabs and control of the council and more than 700 essential services at stake, the very least every candidate and Party should do is tell people their record, their values, and their plans.
That’s exactly what Labour are doing. Our manifesto is detailed, it’s ambitious, and it’s deliverable.
Regenerating our town centres and creating local jobs; caring for children and older people; supporting families and keyworkers; backing the police in the fight against antisocial behaviour; tackling climate change – on all this and more, Labour is on your side.”
As well as the detailed commitments set out in the manifesto, the Party have published 6 headline pledges:
- Deliver regeneration of our town centres and create local jobs;
- Drive up school standards and put our children first;
- Ensure quality care services for older people;
- Develop clean, green transport and energy projects;
- Support police to crack down on crime and antisocial behaviour;
- Improve bus services with greater public control.
Following a boundary review some wards and polling stations have changed, and voters are encouraged to pay close attention to their polling card to find out how many votes they have and the location of their polling station.
