Scott

I am delighted to have been chosen by the local Liberal Democrats to stand as their candidate to represent you in the forthcoming by-election. I grew up in the ward; attending what was then called "Eastbourne Comprehensive". Subsequently I joined the Army - ultimately becoming a Tank Commander and was a Chemical, Biological & Nuclear specialist serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since leaving the Army I have worked in both financial and public sectors as well as being a governor of Darlington College. This past year I have been a volunteer as an NHS COVID-19 responder.
I believe my background has given me the qualities needed to make a good Councillor. I also believe that by electing a Liberal Democrat Councillor you will finally have the representation you deserve.

We believe in asking, and then working with, residents, not merely deciding what we think will be best for them! I have to let you know now that I cannot promise to deliver on anything until I have been elected and then learned how (and with whom) I need to deal. How often have you heard people say "I rang up...., wrote in...., spoke to...., and never heard back"? The one thing I will promise is that even if I cannot get the outcome you would wish, I will have done my best and I will get back to you.
I also believe not just in representing you, but asking for your opinions (and possible solutions) on issues. So, if you elect me, be prepared for surveys! :-)

I also believe in the Liberal Democrat ethos which, in a nutshell is, greener, fairer and more caring; so I am hoping to meet many like-minded people in Red Hall & Lingfield Ward as I campaign to become your elected Councillor in May 2021.

Sincerely yours
Scott Wood
Let the Veteran Serve You!
