Heaton & Lostock Labour
My name is Janahan Kugathas. My father came from Sri Lanka to Bolton in the late 1960s to study textiles at what was then Bolton Institute of Higher Education, now The University of Bolton. My late mother then joined him in the 1970s, they put down roots and raised a family, so I am Bolton born and bred, and proud of it.
I have lived in Heaton & Lostock for X years, where my wife and I are raising our family. I have worked on the front line in healthcare for over 20 years.
Like many of you I am distressed at the way in which this Conservative government, our Conservative MP and this Conservative council have taken voters here for granted.
Over the last 12 years, all of our essential public services, our NHS, social services, schools, police, public transport, waste management etc have been chronically under resourced. We have infrastructure which is nowhere near fit for purpose, and as Northerners, we are treated as 2nd class citizens by the Conservatives. They try to fool us by promising to “level up”. We’ve heard the same from George Osborne with his “Northern Powerhouse” slogan. But that’s all the Conservatives do…take us for fools with their slogans
Our roads are ridden with potholes and our streets are blighted by litter. Our local police force is grossly under resourced so we barely see any officers around. Consequently, burglaries and car crime are common place. Residents are having to install CCTV and pay private security companies to monitor their homes.
We have record numbers of families resorting to using foodbanks, record numbers of people sleeping on the streets and an ever-increasing number of people sofa surfing or living in B & Bs.
The Conservatives don’t appear to have any intention of improving things. Only Labour has the people and policies in place to turn things around and get things moving in the right direction. This is why I joined Labour and and am standing as the Labour candidate for Heaton & Lostock.
If like me, you’re desperate to see improvement, please vote Labour.
