Anne Winstanley for Bishopstoke

Thursday 4th May 2023 - Eastleigh Borough Council Election

The best choice here!

Anne Winstanley works all year round: you only hear from the Tories and Independents when they want your vote!

Conservative record of FAILURE

The Conservative Government is mired with sleaze and failure, having almost bankrupted Britain last year. Locally, County Tories preferred to spend 1,000,000 on their Council chamber while cutting services! Residents agree: we can’t afford the Conservatives at Eastleigh Borough Council.

Borough Winners!

This Year’s Elections

Anne Winstanley demanded the Council commit to save Stoke Park Farm for the community. She won!

Anne is involved in managing Bishopstoke Community Centre, and chairs the local branch of a national advice-giving charity.

Anne is determined to protect our village’s identity and secured the Borough Council’s support to keep the greenfields north of the village saved from building. Bishopstoke needs Anne working with the team that runs the Borough Council.

Labour out of the race

Labour are out of the election race. They have NO Borough councillors and NO chance!
They came third in the vote for our MP last time, as they have done in every General Election for over 40 years.

Only the Liberal Democrats have a record of winning here against the Conservatives.

If you would like to vote by post, go online at www.eastleigh.gov.uk/pv-application or call the Election Office on 023 8068 8000. Forms must be returned by 5pm on Tuesday 18th April.

3 Good reasons to back Anne again on 4th May

1 Only the Liberal Democrats can beat the Tories in our area. Labour cannot win here.

2 The Conservatives have axed vital services at Hampshire - but are stashing YOUR tax in the County bank - they don’t deserve to win!

3 The Liberal Democrats stand up for our area all year, every year - Anne is a key member of the FOCUS team.

ONLY the Lib Dems keep in touch all year round

Don’t forget - unless you choose a postal vote, to vote at a polling station, you must now bring approved photo ID!

The winning choice for Bishopstoke again - Anne WINSTANLEY

Eastleigh Wins!

Lib Dem Eastleigh Borough Council won the 2022 national “Council of the Year” run by the Association for Public Service Excellence. It’s the local government version of the Oscars. You don’t even have to take our word for it!

Investment Strategy that Saves YOU Cash AND Protects Services

How is it possible for Eastleigh’s Lib Dems to cut council tax in real terms every year for 20 years, yet protect services? Good financial management! Even after the Conservative Government’s disastrous mismanagement of the economy with record interest ates and 18% food inflation Eastleigh’s investments still produce extra income to the Council of £5million each year. That’s over £100 saved every year for a typical council tax payer.

The Council’s financial investment strategy, creating jobs along the way, works just like a typical home mortgage, being paid off over time and creating long-term value. Eastleigh’s secure investments give YOU security AND keep YOUR Council Tax down.

3 Things to Remember about this election -

The Liberal Democrats have kept their promises. The Borough’s Council Tax cut in real terms again and services protected from cuts.

Labour are out of the race. They have not elected any councillors at Eastleigh Borough Council for more than 15 years!

The Conservatives are cutting vital services at the County Council through choice. They don’t deserve your vote!

Council Tax Guarantee

The Lib Dems at Eastleigh have cut the Borough’s part of Council Tax in real terms for 20 YEARS running real action to tackle the rising cost of living and protect your pocket. Our Guarantee runs into the future to protect YOUR pocket.

Hampshire’s Conservatives have hiked the County Tax by 40% in just eight years and cut services. We can’t afford the Conservatives running Eastleigh!

A Solution for Bishopstoke Road?

The decision to save the airport and back the Freeport was controversial with some, but our Lib Dem Council’s leadership on these issues now paves the way for the first phase of the long- delayed Eastleigh Relief Road (the “Chickenhall Lane Link Road”). This is the only way we will ever get a solution to long delays getting in to Eastleigh. Our area needs Anne Winstanley back on the Council to work WITH the team leading the Council to help secure this vital infrastructure for our area.
