In our leaflets, discussions and press comments WE HAVE tried to ensure that residents have the facts about how the Tories and Community Reps have let Harwich down.
We are dissapointed, though not surprised, that a Community Representative leaflet is now being delivered describing our statements as ‘nasty, scandalous propaganda’.
All we can do is offer you the facts and ask you to decide for yourself who is telling the truth AND WHO IS WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT ON May 5th.
Below are the issues we have referred to and the dates of the TDC meetings at which the Tories and Community Reps failed to support Harwich. These meetings are a matter of public record.
The Tories and Community Reps voted against the upgrading of our swimming pool, sports hall, Boating Lake and Skating rink on 18th February 2010.
The Tories and Community Reps blocked Labour’s attempt to provide an immediate £20,000 grant for Harwich’s Electric Palace on 1st July 2010.
The Tories and Community Reps voted against the seafront toilets, the 10p parking rate in the Milton Road car park and Disabled Go on 19th February 2008.
The Tory/Community Rep cabinet voted against the Gas House Creek car park on 26th January 2011 with Councillor Steven Henderson actually seconding the motion.
The minutes of these meetings are a matter of public record and an audio recording of TDC council meetings can be listened to via the council’s web site at: www.tendringdc.gov.uk
We hope you agree that this information proves that it is Labour telling the truth.
ONLY LABOUR IS 100% FOR HARWICH
