Your Candidate for Stillington
Julie Howarth Pulleyn
I am Julie and I am a believer in the importance of everyone being involved in politics so they use that power to shape their own lives.
The concentration of power in North Yorkshire in the hands of the Conservatives is open to abuse and that is of concern to me. We need more Labour Councillors.
We also need different types of people holding political power so representatives can truly connect with all sections of people. There is a need for more women Councillors on NYCC, that is why I put myself forward as a candidate.
I may be inexperienced in public office but I believe that it is proven that personal character is more important. I am honest, fair, considerate, hard-working. I am not a self-serving career politician.
I have a socialist background. I care deeply about the social and environmental crisis we are in and want to do something about it.
Local government needs to be freed to work to solve huge social and environmental problems. The Councillors’ lack of diversity, the Conservative Party’s tight fistedness and absence of creative thinking is woefully outdated.
