Ryedale Community Activist
Local Party: Thirsk and Malton Liberal Democrats
Cllr Mike Beckett believes North Yorkshire and Ryedale has been let down by by the Tory run Councils. We need a new local champion to fight for our area, Mike Beckett opposes crude cuts to services as proposed by the Tories and wants to develop Ryedale's business community. Mike promotes projects that create jobs, and campaigns tirelessly to promote the regeneration of our local economy.
Campaigning to protect rural transport services, for more power for local people on planning decisions that affect the community they live in, for example the gas plant proposed for Thorton-Le-Dale and Heslerton's windfarm. Libraries services should be supported to maintain services as access to learning is key for helping residents meet their training personal development needs. We need to invest in helping local people care for their own business and enjoy their lives lived to the full.
