RICHARD SMITH, who has been the County Councillor for Aldeburgh & Leiston since 2010, will be contesting the Blything division, which includes Saxmundham where he now lives.
For the past two years he has held political responsibility for the County’s finances – an annual spend of nearly £500 million delivering services to the people of Suffolk. He is a Suffolk man born and bred, and has lived in Saxmundham since 1991. He served seven years on its Town Council, including two as Chairman.
Richard has a strong track record of helping local people with their problems and representing the views of those he serves at a high level. He gets things done.
Richard says: “If elected as your Councillor, I will work hard for all in Blything Division. I have been involved with the nuclear industry since 2002 and have strong views about Sizewell C and the problems it will cause our area during the 12-year construction period.”
“I will fight for fair treatment for Yoxford, Middleton, Theberton and Eastbridge and argue strongly for a new route, the Sizewell Access Road (D2), to relieve severe pressure on local roads if Sizewell C is built.
“I will work equally as hard throughout Blything’s 11 villages and Saxmundham, including liaising with our schools and trying to tackle the problem of speeding traffic.”
