Cllr Lawrence (Conservative, Belhus) has joined the Conservative Party. Angela said “Being an elected Councillor for Belhus, I need to work with a party who has the ability to plan ahead and who can make decisions for the betterment of all Thurrock residents.
The Conservative Party are working hard for everyone. Their clean it, cut it, fill it campaign is making a difference for everyone. They are working hard for the school children in Thurrock opening new schools and improving education; This is fundamental in preventing a generation of forgotten teenagers who have no confidence or ability to make a better future. They are helping to tackle the anti-social behaviour we see too often in our streets, not just by punishing people but ensuring they have alternatives that will lead them on to a pathway to a better future. I look forward to working beside them as a Conservative Councillor.
Leader of the Conservative Group, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said “It’s great to have Angela join the Conservative Group and we all look forward to working with her. Increasingly UKIP and Independent Members are seeing that the only way to keep Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party from running Thurrock, or the country, is to support the Conservatives. Angela is the third Thurrock Independent to join us this year – my hope is to see more of them come to help us turn the borough around and not run it into the ground as some of the old school Labour councillors seem intent on doing.”
