Labour has announced six pledges which the party commits to achieve using the full extent of its political clout on Bedford Borough Council following the local elections on 7th May.
In spite of being burdened with unprecedented funding cuts from the national government, a team of twelve Labour councillors have been working indefatigably on Bedford Borough Council to ensure that front-line public services are protected.
Proud of their achievements in office, the Bedford Labour group now looks ambitiously to the future. Labour is determined to continue to provide for the needy and vulnerable in our communities, to develop the town, and to protect essential services.
The people of Bedford Borough have an exciting opportunity on 7th May to shape their future, not only nationally but at the local level. In order to achieve the full extent of these ambitions, Labour asks the residents of Bedford Borough to vote Labour to increase the party's representation on the council and to elect Tim Douglas as mayor.
