Vote for Rita Potter!Labour


Well we are in the last week of the 2019 Election Campaign for the Wolverhampton City Council. I want to ask you to give your vote to our Labour Party candidate Rita Potter.

Rita Potter has been a great local City Councillor for the last 9 years. She has been a very visible and approachable Councillor. Active on Coppice High School Governing Body, and other local schools. A leading campaigner to get the £1m Hub built on Ashmore Park. Rita is at the heart of all our campaigns for improvements here in Wednesfield North.

Over the last year alone Rita has been on the streets campaigning for –

  • The saving of Wednesfield Police Station
  • More Bobbies on the Beat!

Rita has also been successful in supporting residents in the limiting of ‘Multiple Homes of Occupation’ here in our Ward.

All of us here in Wednesfield North Labour Party, have spoken up about the way that the Conservative Government has cut Wolverhampton’s City Grant.

Since 2010 Government grant cuts to Wolverhampton have been cut by more than 50%.

Wolverhampton has struggled to cope with that level of resource loss. In the last 8 years the Council has had to make budget cuts of over £220million. We have had enough of this hopeless Conservative Government.

I do hope that Wednesfield North residents will once again support Rita Potter our Wednesfield North Labour Party Candidate. Hard working, living in the Ward, Rita has been a great supporter of hard-working residents.

Now is the time you can support Rita, allowing her to continue to campaign as your City Councillor.

We have a big fight looming around the Green Belt, and land North of Linthouse Lane which developers have shown an interest, They want to construct 2,500 houses onto this beautiful agricultural land. We need Rita back to oppose this development which is in South Staffordshire. We need her experience and we need the strongest representation to deal with this and other looming issues.

Vote for Rita Potter the Labour Party Candidate for Wednesfield North on Thursday -2nd May 2019.
