Knowsley Conservatives pledge

On 2 May, people in Knowsley and across the country will be going to the polls in the 2019 local elections.

These elections are a chance for resident to decide on who is best placed to run these services and how much council tax you will pay for them in return.

Knowsley Conservatives are fielding candidates in every ward in the upcoming council elections, ensuring that voters have an alternative to Labour and are the only opposition party in Knowsley contesting every ward.

Our priorities are to improve secondary education provision, ensure that the redevelopment of Kirkby town centre is implemented and campaign for the end of car parking charges in Kirkby and Huyton to breathe new life into our high streets.

Up and down the country it is Conservative councillors and Conservative councils who have a proven record of managing your money wisely and providing good local services.

Conservatives set lower council tax than Labour councils – in 2018-19 an average of £118 a year lower for a typical home, meaning you and your neighbours have more money in your pockets at the end of the month.

Labour’s record shows that Labour councillors mean higher council tax and worse local services, you only need to look at the Labour-run Liverpool council, which has asked households to pay an extra £16 on their council tax bills for their Mayor’s salary.

In these elections, the choice is clear, a vote for Conservative councillors who deliver better services for their communities, together with lower taxes or a vote for Labour and higher council tax and worse local services.
