The Conservative Party candidates for Havering. Andrew Rosindell ( Romford )


On May 3, the people of Havering will have to make a clear choice about the future direction of our borough.

It is the most important local election I can ever remember.

Havering will change in the coming decade, we all know that, but this election will decide how it will change.

What will Havering look like in ten years time?

Conservatives will fight to keep the special character of Havering, with green open spaces, good local schools, low density developments, lower crime than the rest of London and oppose the urban sprawl which will eventually mean that Havering becomes just like another part of inner London, rather than traditional towns and villages of Essex.

We will also restore pride to Romford, making our town centre a place that we can all be proud of again, by working with businesses and the community to invest in regeneration that will improve all our lives.

Conservatives will also bring back our historic Romford and Hornchurch town crests and uphold our local identity with passion.

Mayor Khan and Labour are not interested in areas like Havering. They care only about inner London and will impose ill-conceived and damaging policies on us.

A Labour controlled council would also take us back to political correctness.

Remember Labour voted not to fly the Union Jack, bringing national shame on our borough!

As Romford’s MP, I have put forward a team of twenty-one local people who will work with me for the good of our town and our borough if elected in three weeks time and together with our Conservative colleagues in Hornchurch, Upminster and Rainham, we will Keep Havering Special and in safe hands!
