SARAH ROMMELL the Independent candidate has published her Hedon Town Council by-election statement on the Hedon Blog.
In her statement Sarah Rommell says that she is a life-long resident of the town and cares about local issues. Those local issues, she says, which “may seem small to some, are important and even life changing to others.” The statement cites the poor state of the pavements in Hedon, as an example of one of these issues; “on Drapers Lane and Westland’s estate (poor pavements – Ed) kept elderly and disabled people trapped in their houses due to ice during the recent spells of bad weather.”
The statement lists some of the candidate’s concerns and interests. Sarah Rommell would like to arrange a special needs youth club in the area, and is currently consulting with organizations to set up a Foodbank in Hedon to help people hit by the austerity cuts. She is concerned about cuts to police services and moves to reduce opening hours at police stations.
Some of the community spirit in the town is something that has been lost, she says, and would like to work with the other councillors, churches and organisations to rebuild this.
On development and jobs – an issue which has already been raised in this election: “Hedon is a local town and it should stay that way, not becoming merely a suburb of Hull. Whilst I appreciate the need for new housing in the area it has to be handled carefully as we run the risk of over-developing our town to its detriment and risk breaking our already stretched resources.”
