Bringing about the fair and just society that I would like to see Peter Bolton
I have lived in Whitby since retiring three years ago. During that time I have been involved in local campaigning for the Labour Party, which I joined in 2015 because I believed it was the only organisation which could bring about the fair and just society that I would like to see.
If I am elected, I will be pressing for more affordable housing, more investment in rural communities, and a serious approach to the problem of climate change through better recycling and an open, transparent approach to running Scarborough Council.
I am involved in the local community as a volunteer for MIND and as a lay minister at St John’s Church in Sleights.
Together with my wife Jane, I enjoy singing in local choirs, walking and playing bowls at Sleights Bowls Club (not very well!).
