A local teacher who stands up for Soham & Isleham residents
Soham resident Victoria Charlesworth wants to help make Soham and Isleham even better places to live.
There’s a by-election here in October because of the resignation of one of the Conservative Councillors, who has been given a £130,000 taxpayer-funded job by his party colleague Mayor James Palmer.
£100,000 a year:
paid for by you
Mayor Palmer appoints fellow Soham Conservative to taxpayer-funded job
The Soham North & Isleham by-election has been caused because yet another East Cambs Conservative has secured a very well-paid job – a job paid for by local taxpayers.
In this election you can say enough is enough.
Making a mess
Conservatives like to claim they are good with your money. But they can’t claim that round here.
In this area the Conservatives are making a real mess of council finances:
“The Eastern Gateway will soon provide hundreds of much-needed new houses,” says Victoria. “But we badly need the right infrastructure too: doctors, sewerage, facilities for children, public transport.”
