The Skirbeck ward and division wants change; the Skirbeck ward and division need change. There are two questions to ask though which deserve an answer. Firstly, is a vote for the same old political party system really going to change anything for the better? Secondly, should we now be looking for something new and different? My name is Chris Moore. I have the privilege of standing again as a candidate for A Blue Revolution in Skirbeck this May, and I am asking for your vote.
Blue Revolution is not a political party in the accepted sense of the word. We are a group of like-minded, free thinking individuals, originally formed in Boston, to represent the needs of Bostonians, who cannot and will not be whipped into voting along party political lines. In effect, we are independents with the added advantage of a support network behind us. Our mantra is people first, not the party, and it is under that banner I pledge to represent your interests and concerns.
I live very near to the Skirbeck ward, and have stood in the area on previous occasions, so am acutely aware of what concerns you as a resident: issues ranging from potholes, speed limits, litter and anti-social behaviour, having listened to you on the door-steps last time around. I am not Boston born but I have lived in the town for 15 years now. This is the longest amount of time I have lived in any one place and I really love the town so regard myself as an adopted Bostonian.
If elected, I will make myself available to take on board your concerns and help in overcoming them. I will be open, transparent and will establish regular surgeries whereby you can speak to me face to face. If I don’t know the answer, I will tell you, and will do the best of my ability to find out the answer. I pledge to attend all committee meetings as required, health permitting, so will be an active representative of yours.
My argument is that a vote for Blue Revolution is a vote which is truly yours; it is a new approach to local politics which deserves a chance, so I would really appreciate your support. This is your opportunity to break away from the established political party system which holds little or no relevance to your day to day life. Blue Revolution puts you first and not the party. Thank you.
