IT’S YOUR CHOICE – LOCAL ACTIVIST OR TORY PUPPET Only hours before the polls open for the council elections in Werrington, one

thing is clear. It is a ‘two horse race’ between local resident Julia Davidson,

your Liberal Democrat FOCUS Team candidate, and the Tory candidate.

Everyone agrees that Labour cannot win this election. Just look at the

results of elections here over the past few years (see graph below).

People who vote Labour in national elections have told Lib Dem councillor

Darren Fower they are voting for Julia in this election to keep the Tories out.

The choice on Thursday is clear – it is a choice between local Lib Dem

activist Julia Davidson, who campaigns to get things done in this area, and a

councillor who does and votes as he is told by council leader Marco Cereste.

So, how you vote on Thursday matters. You will be electing your local

councillor to represent you, your community and your family.

Your vote can change the way our city council is run. Just one vote –

maybe your vote – can make the difference!

DARREN SAYS … On Thursday you will elect a city

councillor to work with Lib Dem

Darren Fower, who remains a

councillor until 2013.

Darren said: “Werrington and

Gunthorpe need an active councillor

who will fight to get this area noticed

by the council – not another Tory

puppet who will vote as directed to

give Town Hall bosses a quiet life.

“Julia Davidson is the only candidate

who lives in this ward and will work

tirelessly with me to represent you.”

LOCAL RESIDENTS

SAY:

Sandra Bond, community activist

(Edinburgh Avenue)

Mike Holland, local businessman

(Carron Drive)

Cllr Darren Fower

Of course, it is what residents say

with their votes that really counts.

The last time the incumbent Tory

councillor stood for election, less

than 20 per cent of those entitled to

vote actually voted for him!

Lib Dem FOCUS Editor Julia

Davidson lives in this ward – unlike

any of the other candidates. She is

actively involved in producing the

regular FOCUS newsletters (how

often do you hear from the Tories?)

and in delivering them in the area

around her home in Fulbridge Road.
