Steve Bilbe, who is standing in the Emsworth ward, is a Deputy Head Teacher living in Emsworth with his wife and children.
“I am committed to making sure Emsworth continues to be the fantastic place that it is to live. I am worried that if we continue to live in a society dominated by a Conservative government and a Conservative controlled Borough Council this will not be the case.
Out of 38 councillors on our Council, 35 are representatives of the Conservative Party. We need a wider range of views to ensure that Havant Borough Council becomes more representative of all of the people in our community, and decisions which affect us all are debated democratically and subjected to effective scrutiny.
At present, the policy is to spend as little as possible on local services. We need to act immediately to protect our vital local services now and for future generations.”
