Windermere is awesome. I feel so blessed to have been able to grow up and work here but recently we’ve seen bad decisions being made by our local politicians.
They promised to fix our roads but fell far short.
They make seven figures from car parking charges but want to sell off the Tourist Information Centre after already putting public loos on the line.
Most tragically our representatives proposed and then pushed through on street parking meters despite our pleas.
It doesn’t have to be this way. If you believe Windermere can be better I’m asking you to #backBen on 2nd October. Send me to County Hall in Kendal and lets see what we can get done.
A by-election has been called for Windermere Division on 2nd October 2014 after the untimely and sad death of Councillor Jo Stephenson.
