YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS
A VOTE FOR THE CONSERVATIVES IS A VOTE TO CLOSE THE LIBRARIES IN ESSEX!
We are absolutely appalled by the decision of Local Conservative County Councillors to vote against the Labour motion to keep the Libraries of Essex open.
Conservative County Councillor Reeves stated at a recent protest at Hadleigh Library that she would do all she could to keep the library open. Yet she voted AGAINST the Labour motion to keep our libraries open.
Conservative County Councillor Sheldon stated in his 2018 election address that he is "not afraid of speaking up if something is wrong and I know how to get things done." , yet he too voted AGAINST the Labour motion to keep our libraries open.
When he did speak up it was to criticise the calling of the extraordinary council meeting, saying that it was only called because there was an election coming.
The reality is it was called because a massive 57,000 people signed petitions to keep the libraries open.
Yet again the Conservative priority is to put party first and the people second.
