Wisbech Conservatives did not want three by-elections in August.
We’ve already had enough elections this year.
We didn’t want to have to spend thousands of pounds of taxpayer’s money on another one. It could have been better spent on the actual town than another election
Nevertheless, Alan Lay decided he was too old to go on, and the Bucknors quit out of the blue also. So we have had no choice but to find candidates.
But they say every cloud has a silver lining and this particular silver lining is a great one. Because we have three FANTASTIC Conservative candidates for Waterlees/North Ward.
People say they want local candidates, people who are known in the area and who know the area. People who understand the local issues and are invested in the community.
We have three people exactly like that. Three candidates who we are sure will work very hard for North Ward / Waterlees. Three candidates who can join Billy Rackley (at Town Council) and Steve Tierney (as the County Councillor) to finally begin to deliver the services and support that local people deserve.
Andrew Lynn – Born and Bred in North Ward / Waterlees. Proud Son of Wisbech. Has worked for years with the homeless and is a foster carer.
Andy Maul – Proprietor of Bygones Cafe, the much-loved diner in the town centre. Well known and well-respected by his friends and customers, Andy wants to work with Wisbech Town Council to return the Market Place to glory, investing in and growing what it offers for everybody.
Laura Cobb – Teaching Assistant at Orchards School. Born n’ Bred North Ward / Waterlees, friendly, helpful and approachable. Laura is keen to see more services for families and children, in particular the rebuilding and expansion of the Skate Park in the ward.
These are the three candidates that have been selected to represent the Conservatives in the by-election at the end of August. More information will be forthcoming as the campaign progresses, of course.
But that’s a *strong* team, isn’t it? A strong team for North Ward / Waterlees. A strong team for the Town Council. A strong team for Wisbech.
