    Lib Dems Manifesto for Suffolk Launch

    'Getting Suffolk back on its Feet' - Reconnecting, Reviving & Regenerating Communities.

    page2image5501120Lib Dem Deputy Party Leader, Daisy Cooper MP will join Suffolk Liberal Democrats on Monday March 22nd to speak to members and supporters before the virtual launch of their Manifesto for the County Council and Police & Crime Commissioner Elections on 6th May.

    Chair of Suffolk Liberal Democrats, Jon James said: 'Since 2005 the Conservatives have run the County Council and in those 16 years there has been a lack of investment in critical public services and innovation and now the pandemic has added further damage to our local economy. We need to urgently repair and redress the imbalance in the support available to families who have disproportionately suffered economically, physically and mentally. Our care system is in crisis through a lack of funding and a joined-up approach between health and social care. The pandemic has shown up the paucity of the mental health provision and our children's education and young people's training has been disrupted. There are poor levels of connectivity and transport especially in rural areas and an ageing infrastructure needs rebuilding. We also need a fairer funding for our police service to achieve a safer Suffolk.

    The Suffolk Liberal Democrat Manifesto focuses on the need to reconnect with our communities boost our economy, respond to climate change and lead the recovery from Covid reversing years of failure to invest in Suffolk's public and police services'.

    Despite the Government's decision to hold these elections during the lockdown with significant restrictions on campaigning and added costs the Party is looking to add to its seats at the elections on May 6th.
