Lynne Lambeth is our County Council candidate for Malvern Langland. Lynne has lived and worked in Malvern for the last 26 years and was elected to Malvern Town Council last year to represent Pickersleigh. She is also the chair of Labour’s Malvern Branch.
Lynne’s personal statement sets out what is at stake in this critical election and why only she can provide the strong voice to protect people in Malvern Pickersleigh and Priory from further cuts:
‘This is a very important election. The Tory controlled County Council has imposed drastic cuts to our public services -; social care, youth services, children’s centres, bus routes, support for voluntary and community organisations, libraries and waste disposal and without a Labour voice representing you in Pickersleigh and Priory more cuts will come.
As your Town Councillor already this seat is a straight choice between myself or another Tory who will vote through further cuts. I won’t. I’ll fight for our community, for investment in the area and to retain what we have. I will ensure what you pay in taxes is spent on services here in Malvern.
On top of the £100 million cut since 2011, the Tories are now planning further cuts of over £50 million in the next two years. Labour Councillors are an effective and positive force at County Hall in support of local families and communities. In the past four years, Labour Councillors have been at the forefront of campaigns to maintain and improve bus services; protect funding for learning disability, mental health and older people’s services; and prevent the closure of children’s centres.
We are now faced with new threats to the future of Malvern Community Hospital. Your voice deserves to be heard when such critical decisions are being made. As your County Councillor, I will be a strong and positive voice at County Hall in support of Langland residents, businesses and communities.’
