Pauline's Election Pledge
"Since I became involved in local politics as a Conservative Borough Councillor for Wokingham Without I have had only one aim – to make life better for everyone in our local community: the community I’ve lived in and been part of, for over thirty years.
I believe I have made a difference, but you are the best judge of that. Look to my recent record, particularly in championing our environment.
· I’ve played an integral part in making sure that our Council collects and spends our money efficiently and provides good value in delivering our services.
· I persuaded the Council to buy Heathlake and make it a key local amenity.
· I championed the planting 250,000 trees throughout the borough.
· Our weekly waste collection has been protected and we build upon our record of promoting recycling, reducing plastic use and delivering solar energy.
If I am re-elected, I promise to continue to listen to your concerns and aspirations and will continue to identify and implement solutions that address local issues.
Please support me on May 6th."
