Bedworth Central: Julie Jackson
'Our community has been devasted by this dreadful pandemic and we need a strong voice at the County Council who is prepared to stand up for Bedworth, fight our corner and insist on our fair share.'
Julie Jackson speaking after her selection by Labour to represent Bedworth Central in the County Council elections
“I grew up in Bedworth attending local schools and still live in our town today. I am married with three grown up daughters. I have worked as a Manager in a supermarket, as a parliamentary assistant and spent several years as a Non-Executive Director at the George Eliot Hospital.
Our community has been devasted by this dreadful pandemic and we need a strong voice at the County Council who is prepared to stand up for Bedworth, fight our corner and insist on our fair share. It often feels like the South of the County gets more than us. We need to ensure this isn’t the case. I am currently a Nuneaton and Bedworth Councillor and know the issues facing us all. I have a proven track record of straight talking that gets results for residents. We need decent roads not pothole riddled ones, we need adequate funding for our schools not just hollow promises and we need a much improved public transport network.
My Five Pledges to you
- Demand Warwickshire County Council join Transport for the West Midlands so we get cheaper and more frequent services on train and bus journeys
- Urge Warwickshire County Council to switch our lights back on at night
- Be a strong voice and say no to being run from Warwick we need to keep services local.
- Campaign for better road maintenance in Bedworth, to repair potholes quickly and improving highway signs and lighting
- Speak out for better funding for our local schools so we can give our children the best start in life.
If privileged to be elected I promise to be that strong voice we all deserve in Bedworth. “
