Council leader Jones urges residents to keep faith with Tories
Updated 3:41pm Thursday 17th April 2014 in News
CHESHIRE East Council's leader has issued an extra special Easter statement, where he urges Knutsfordians to stick with the Conservative party, ahead of the bank holiday weekend.
Clr Michael Jones said: "Easter is always such a lovely time – the daffodils are out, children are excited about all the chocolate they’ll be given and the summertime is just around the corner.
"It represents a time of faith and the knowing that things are about to get brighter and, hopefully, better.
“Many of us will go to church over the holidays to think about the deeper meaning of Easter too.
“It is a time for us to be thankful for what the resurrection represents and it’s a poignant opportunity to think about our family and future.
“It is also a time to think about our own goals in life. Personally, this will be a time for me to use this short break to revitalise the Council’s key goals.
“We will have some major announcements next week on housing as we all know this is a very big issue for our communities.
“I ask that the people of Cheshire East keep faith that the Conservatives will – and are - delivering the very best for our communities.
“Voting for UKIP is a vote for Labour, a party that would like to see an extra 200,000 homes in our communities built each year – yes! Each year!
“That would mean Cheshire East Council taking on some of Manchester’s housing quota which would be a disaster.
“So, voting UKIP or Labour means you are voting for unprecedented concrete across our countryside.
“That is something none of us here in Cheshire East want, so I promise I will personally deliver and fight for what is right for the people of Cheshire East.”
