Electors in Hailsham North-West goes to the polls on Thursday 10th February in a by-election to elect a new Town Councillor
Steve KEOGH is your local, committed and experienced Conservative candidate.
I AM delighted to have been selected as your Conservative candidate for the Town Council by-election here, where I live.
After 25 years as a Royal Naval Officer, and twice Gulf veteran, I retired to set up a small local business in Hailsham. My wife, Janette, and I have lived in this area for over nine years.
In the recent past, I had the pleasure and privilege of chairing the Welbury Meadows and Grange Residents’ Association, either side of Brunel Drive, one of the larger parts of our ward.
As Chair, I tackled a significant number of problems successfully and gained considerable direct experience in leading speed campaigns, introducing speed-safety signs, and engaging with the Police, PCSOs and Youth Workers for more local presence and visibility to combat increasing anti-social behaviour, drug abuse and knife crime. I continue to offer support to the Committee.These problems affect everyone from Hedley Way on The Grange; Welbury Meadows off Brunel Drive; Anglesey Avenue and the London Road, and Bakers Farm residents. If elected, I pledge to prioritise them on your behalf.
I am also passionate about ensuring that local housing development prioritises local needs, and is accompanied by adequate infrastructure. From continued feedback, this is clearly a high priority for very many.
I will use my residents’ association and local business experience to challenge more effectively, on your behalf, so that concerns are dealt with quickly. I will also work hard to ensure that the Town Council delivers value-for-money services in return for our taxes.
Hailsham is a wonderful place to live and I care passionately about it. If you afford me the privilege of electing me on 10th February, I promise to champion the issues that I know matter most to YOU, the residents of north-west ward.
