Let’s improve the lives of ordinary people… money raised in the area should be spent in the area, and not used for pet projects elsewhere Amanda Daynes
I joined Labour in 2010 because I wanted to stop simply moaning about the political system and start helping to improve things. I have become more active over the last few years as I increasingly felt that Labour has started to remember its purpose again – to improve the lives of ordinary people. I care about my community and want to see improvements.
I’ll fight for fair investment in Whitby
Whitby and the surrounding areas suffers from a lack of investment despite being a wealthy, successful tourist area. As councillor I would seek to redress that balance and fight for proper investment and accountability. We need to be confident that money raised in the area is spent in the area and not used for pet projects elsewhere.
I am a teacher working in Scarborough and living in Whitby. I have been a teacher for over 10 years and active in the union for all of that time. I am currently the union representation for my college and have been successful in fighting for better working conditions for all and equal treatment for part-time staff.
