Vote for Mike in the local elections!

Vox Political’s Mike Sivier is standing as a Labour Party candidate for Powys County Council’s Llanbadarn Fawr ward – and there’s more to him than a nice smile [Image: Mike Sivier].

The people of Llanbadarn Fawr ward, in Powys, will have the chance to vote for This Writer as their representative in the forthcoming county council elections.

That’s right – I have put myself forward as a Labour Party candidate in the election on May 4.

As readers of my blog Vox Political will know, I provide a strong voice for what I think is right. Powys – and the people of Llanbadarn Fawr – need a strong voice to represent the real needs of the community.

These are times of hard choices, with funding cuts from the Conservative Government in Westminster forcing difficult decisions on councillors.

But I am pledging to:

  • Protect quality social care, provided according to need;
  • Protect education and the future of our children;
  • Create opportunities for young people to live and thrive in the county;
  • Bring cheaper, cleaner energy to all our homes;
  • Protect county council functions including waste and recycling services.

But why read about it when you can watch me explain on a short video? Take a look:

If you’re in Llanbadarn Fawr, in Powys, please consider voting for me.

If you know somebody who lives there, please share this article, and the video, with them.

    Good luck Mike. It’s good to see someone standing as a councillor who actually says what he wants to do locally.

    Up here we are being bombarded by Tory (the party that is saying it wants more local power) leaflets. They are all identical, “vote for us to stop another referendum”, with no mention of any local issues whatsoever.

    I just hope, when you’re elected, you still have a bit of time left for this site!

      I might have to cut the number of posts, but hopefully I’ll be able to keep it going.

    Not part of the ward so I can’t vote for you – but I wish you all the luck in the world. Labour needs more like you. J

    I know the place well but unfortunately I’m in Llangollen but I will be voting for our Labour candidate here. Good luck Mike and I hope you get in. We need all the Labour MPs we can get.

    I have tweeted this article hoping to reach a few of your potential voters Mike. I couldn’t think of a better candidate but sadly can’t vote for you as I live elsewhere.

    All the very best to you and I hope your constituents see the Mike we have appreciated through your blog. You have core real Labour values, and a steely determination to see wrongs righted.
