Group launches council election campaign

HENLEY Residents’ Group launched its county council election campaign outside the town hall on Saturday.

HENLEY Residents’ Group launched its county council election campaign outside the town hall on Saturday.

The party’s candidate is Stefan Gawrysiak, the Deputy Mayor and former assistant headteacher at Gillotts School.

He said: “Henley needs an independent voice and a champion who is independent of party politics — someone who will speak about local issues. Henley residents want local things fixed, such as potholes repaired, safe pedestrian crossings installed, 20mph zones set around schools, youth centre funding, heavy goods vehicles through traffic reduced and Townlands Hospital finished.”

Cllr Gawrysiak said he would ensure Oxfordshire County Council consulted Henley when making decisions. He added: “People are fed up with the way local needs are being ignored at county level. That’s what comes of electing candidates representing national political parties.”

Voting will take place on May 2. The other candidates are Ken Arlett (UK Independence Party), David Nimmo Smith (Conservative), who is the sitting councillor, and Asbjorg Dunker (Liberal Democrat).
