On May 4th 2023, we, the people of Tendring, will elect our representatives for the next four years. Who we elect will determine what kind of council we get and set the course for decisions to be made that will affect us all. Sometimes, the consequences aren't obvious. In 2019, the people of Tendring elected a council in which no one party had a majority BUT some independents joined with the Conservatives, keeping the same Conservative politicians in power. Life is hard and things are worse than most of us can remember. Many people are fed up with the council and with politics but the answer isn't to stay at home and not vote. That just gives a free run to councillors who don't work hard and don't listen to their electors.
In 2019 the Tendring Liberal Democrats increased our share of the vote. Councillor Gary Scott (Alresford & Elmstead) was re-elected and Ann Wiggins (Alresford & Elmstead) was elected for the first time. The Tendring Liberal Democrats also came close to winning further seats in Burrsville and Manningtree, Mistley & Lawford. In 2023, we will be standing on the manifesto below, a manifesto that lays out a plan for a fairer, more hopeful future for Tendring.
