Oadby and Wigston Moving Forward
Oadby and Wigston is a thriving, diverse and developing Borough where many people aspire to live and residents are proud to call their home. In September 2017 the Government Wellbeing survey voted Oadby and Wigston as the 5th happiest place to live in the UK.
The Liberal Democrat controlled Council has worked hard over the past few years to foster local community cohesion, develop the local economy and deliver local services for the residents to the highest possible standards, whilst facing enormous financial pressures from both Central Government and Conservative controlled County Hall.
Your local ward councillors Linda & Frank Broadley and team member Clare Kozlowski firmly believe that Oadby and Wigston is a great and safe place to live, work and visit. Under the control of the Liberal Democrats the Borough has maintained a sound financial footing and a balanced budget year on year.
No other political party, be it Conservative, Labour or Independent has put forward an alternative budget or plans to develop the Borough and are often absent from committee meetings where discussions take place.
Oadby and Wigston is the only district in Leicestershire to retain front line services of free shopper’s car parking, and weekly refuse and recycling. All other Conservative controlled districts have started charging for car parking and moved to fortnightly refuse collections.
Introducing Clare Kozlowski
Clare Kozlowski (nee Bunting) has been working with the Focus team for a number of years. Clare has lived in Wigston for the past 30 years and her two daughters both attended the Wigston schools.
Clare is a trained nurse in both learning disabilities and mental health with a Bsc Honours in nursing and a Specialist Nurse qualification in Mental Health. Clare is currently working as a Senior Manager within the NHS and studying for a fellowship at Kings College in London.
Clare is standing as a Liberal Democrat as she recognises how active they are in the local community. Clare says, “The Liberal Democrats are always out delivering leaflets in my area and I believe that they are the only political group who are active. I like what they do for our community and for the residents.”
