Sue knows Kempston very well, having lived in the town for 36 years, the last 23 in Loveridge Avenue, right in the heart of the ward.
Having been a member of the Executive and the Labour Group Leader, she has a vast knowledge of how the Council works.

Sam lives and works and lives in Kempston and is pleased to have made it his home. After graduating university with a BA in politics he chose to move to the area and began working for a local business.
He has found Kempston a welcoming and friendly place to settle, but also one which is struggling under a government cutting services and funding.
Sam believes it is vital for residents to be represented by people fighting for their interests. He will be the youngest Councillor elected to the Town Council for nearly fifty years and wants to ensure that younger members of the community have their views taken into account.
