Following the May local elections, we currently have five councillors, and the council is under no overall control, although the Conservatives have taken control using the mayor’s casting vote.
As well as the formal business, the purpose of this meeting is to begin the process of building on our strong performance in May. We are an important and influential opposition party on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council. We need the support of members and residents to push through change in the council.
We need to start a new borough-wide conversation to ensure that we really understand the local policy issues that affect you and how best they can be addressed. This will also be an opportunity to meet the Alliance councillors and discuss issues of concern with them as well as to offer comments on our manifesto.
To succeed we need members who support us through donations and other encouragement and join us in roles such as Press Officer, Party Secretary / Manager, Website Manager, Campaign Manager and Policy Champions, as well as potential future candidates.
Please do not hesitate to put yourself forward if you would like to get involved in any of these roles You can do this at the meeting, or in advance by contacting the Chair by email or telephone below. Contact: Nick Pope on 07956340255 or firstname.lastname@example.org
