Bulmershe and Whitegates By-Election

We are currently campaigning to win the by-election being held in Bulmershe and Whitegates Ward within Reading East caused by the disqualification of a former Lib Dem councillor.

Polling day is Thursday 13th November and we are working hard to ensure our candidate Alison Swaddle is elected. Labour won a seat from the Lib Dems in this ward in May 2014 and we must stop Labour winning here again.

Alison is out with the Conservative team every day during this election but has been talking to residents every Saturday all year round for the last 7 years. She enjoys getting involved with her community and is serving her second term as a Bulmershe School Parent Governor. She’s also a Beaver Scout leader iand part of the litter-picking initiative.

Alison and her husband live in the ward with their two teenage children who are at local schools. She runs her own small business. She would be a strong voice for you on Wokingham Borough Council and speak up on local concerns about development, speeding and inconsiderate parking.

Reading East MP Rob Wilson said “We need a hard working local woman like Alison to be the strong voice of Woodley and Earley on Wokingham Borough Council, other parties have only let residents down.“


Please call or email Alison with your views or concerns or to offer help for her campaign.
