The situation of carers in Suffolk

Brilliant to see the EADT taking the issues faced by unpaid carers – particularly working-age women – so seriously.

Their coverage  today:

http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/carers-don-t-want-cake-they-want-realistic-support-says-campaigning-councillor-1-5074532

highlights many of  the problems and inequities faced by women carers  in Suffolk: longterm stress,  poverty, loss of career, pension, loneliness, the often infantile and wholly inadequate nature of the ‘support’ on offer.

And as the LibDem Green and Independent Group’s spokesperson for Women I suggest the problems experienced by carers would be less hidden if Suffolk County Council made themselves more aware of the challenges facing women in the county!

Thank You, Woodbridge!

Caroline Page, County Councillor, Woodbridge

Thank you, Woodbridge, for the confidence you have shown in me by electing me to represent you for another four years.

It is a privilege be chosen to serve you and i will continue to work with you to make our town the best place it can be for all of us to live in.

For those interested:
Woodbridge polled 47% of the electorate – well above the 37-38% average across Suffolk, and the highest in Suffolk Coastal.  (In the last county council election, in 2013, Woodbridge had a 42% turnout). Not a single spoiled paper was recorded. I am immensely proud of both of these facts: it shows the town has a very committed and enthusiastic electorate.

  •  As regards numbers, I polled 51% of the vote (1,547)- a significant increase on the 42%  of the vote I polled in 2013.  Conservative  vote was 1,041; Labour, 254; Greens, 113; UKIP, 55.

Woodbridge: Remember to Vote Today!

 

I’m standing for re-election as Woodbridge County Councillor in the 2017 Suffolk County Council election

Today, May 4th, is the date of the local elections. You are voting to elect your county councillor. So, what qualities are you looking for?

A local candidate? One with years of experience? Someone with a track record of hard work, and practical activism? Someone who is prepared to fight your corner?

I am standing for election for a fourth term in the town I have made my home for the last 25 years. I’m the only county councillor in East Suffolk – maybe in Suffolk – to have been running a monthly open-access surgery for Suffolk residents since 2011. I’ve successfully fought for improvements to local services – and against cuts. I have upheld the voice of individual residents at all times and forcefully called the administration’s decision-making to account.

I can’t promise to solve every problem – but I can promise to listen, to support, and to do my very best to help you. I can also promise that if you re-elect me, I will continue to work indefatigably on your behalf.

It’s your town, it’s your vote, it’s your decision. I’m asking you to trust me to respect all of these things and to put your vote to best use by voting for me today.

Caroline
