It's been a busy week in the Blacon campaign.
Jack Jackson, the Conservative candidate for April 20th, has led teams out throughout the ward meeting local residents. Jack said:
"It's been great to meet so many residents in Blacon and talk to them directly about their local concerns. I was pleased that many have taken the time to read my first leaflet and have told me how much they appreciate someone highlighting the poor state of local pavements. If elected, I'll make sure Blacon gets its fair share of resources to put this neglect right!"
When meeting people in the Stamford Road area, many residents were keen to hear about Jack's "Grot Spot" campaign:
"Thank you to everybody in Blacon who took the time to speak to us and raised issues with me and my team. It's clear that the poor state of the pavements matters to a lot of people. I'm disappointed to see this sort of neglect in the area. As Blacon's councillor I will take action on these simple but important issues."
This week, Jack also visited the former Blacon station, which has benefit from a revamp. Paying tribute to the volunteers who made this happen, he said:
"It was fabulous to see for myself the brilliant efforts of local Sustrans volunteers and others who have worked hard to give the old Blacon Station a revamp. A great example of people taking pride in the area and keeping the network of local cycle and footpaths in good condition for everyone to enjoy."
