David Picton-Jones – Labour Party Candidate for Denmead

David Picton-Jones
David Picton-Jones

I am a retired Headteacher who lives locally. I was also a magistrate in both
Fareham and Portsmouth for 24 years. I’m involved with charity work and I
know the area well.

I am keen to be elected to serve on our local council to promote the
principles, values and beliefs of the Labour Party. Locally our communities
continue to suffer from the maladministration of the Pandemic crisis. This is
exacerbated by years of austerity under the Tories which have left our local
structures denied proper support. The evidence is all around us. It includes:

• The scandal of foodbanks which have to provide food for the poor
including children in one of the most prosperous areas of the nation
• The lack of proper local transport for the 50% of the population without
access to a private car
• The focus on allowing developers to build housing which affords them
the greatest profit rather than seeking to provide homes for everyone
Of course these and the other problems can only be successfully addressed
within a national context. Therefore a vote for Labour in Meon Valley can help
to secure a national mood that the government is not addressing the real
needs of people.
Please vote for Labour candidates on May 5th 2022.

Paul Sony – Candidate for Southwick and Wickham

Paul has lived in Wickham for over 7 years and works in Fareham, Paul is a member of the GMB Union where he is heavily involved in equalities. He believes that people should be treated equally and not be discriminated against. Paul believes in NHS services for all and that it should be kept in public ownership. He believes it is vital that teachers are given resources to provide education, the quality of education that children deserve. Private companies should not be running schools as a business. It is also vital that there are improved transport links locally so that people can get around more easily.

I moved into this area 35 years ago to take up a post as a Science teacher in a local school and stayed teaching locally until I retired. I want to live in a fair society where everyone has the same opportunities which will only happen with the Labour Party in power. We desperately need to reverse the cuts to Public Services and put ordinary people first.

Daniel Reid

I am Daniel Reid, your Labour candidate for Whiteley and Shedfield ward in the upcoming Winchester City Council District elections. I am a self employed bricklayer working in and around Hampshire and have lived in Whiteley for the past 6 years. I care about people being able to find rewarding employment and career opportunities in this rapidly-changing economy, without the sacrifice of worker’s rights or financial security. I want to help households and businesses in the cost of living crisis, and ensure sufficient public services are being introduced to support the ongoing sprawl of new housing. I do not support the proposed quarry and landfill at Five Oaks Farm.

I was a teacher and educational psychologist for 20 years before becoming a lecturer at the Civil Service College. Subsequently I became a CEO and then ran my own business for over 20 years. I have a good understanding of public and private sectors and how both should be able to serve all citizens in their different ways. I am fully committed to Labour’s pledges in this election to revive
participation in local democracy and make significant improvements in housing, energy efficiency, transport and a thriving high street.

I have been a resident of the area since 2005 after moving from Surrey via Yorkshire. I am a family man and my three boys all went to school here. I am an IT consultant by trade, with a background that includes finance, energy, and social care. I have watched as Cowplain and Waterlooville have changed over the last two decades, the slow decline of services in the community has been a point of sadness for me. I would like to see proper investment in our community, our home, to help people here reach their full potential.
I joined the Labour party in 2020, a time when the world seemed to stop, hoping to make a difference when it started again.

Stefanie Harvey — Labour Party Candidate for Central Meon Valley

I have lived in the Meon Valley all my life and was educated in local schools,
as well now sending my children to them. I am a Politics A Level Teacher at a
local college and I am an ardent supporter of education to work towards The
Labour Party principles of an equitable and fair society for all. I believe
keenly in the value of charity work and contributing to the local community; I
have volunteered at local food banks and beach clean ups and I have served
as Vice Chair of Governors at a school in the ward. I am a passionate
campaigner for increased access and enhancement of special educational
needs in our schools, an area which I will champion should I be elected. I
resist further cuts to local services as the country moves through a cost of
living crisis and would champion enhanced spending on social services,
health care and education to increase prospects for current and future
generations, whilst promoting secure employment opportunities, workers
rights and advocating for financial security for all. If elected I will work with
the local grass root concerns within the community and represent your voice
within local council.
