Reading East and Reading West Conservatives have jointly published their manifesto - Our Plan for An Even Better Reading - for the Reading Borough Council "all out" elections to be held on Thursday May 5th.
Across our wonderful town, the Conservative Party is fielding a full slate of 48 candidates offering every voter the choice of casting their three votes for strong Conservative candidates in every one of the council's 16 wards.
Our candidates come from all walks of life and fully reflect Reading's vibrant BAME communities. Indeed, our slate this year is our most diverse and inclusive on record. All our candidates are putting the best interests of Reading at the heart of everything they say and do. All of them are absolutely committed to making Reading an even better place to live with your support.
We have a fantastic opportunity this year with every council seat in Reading coming up for election. It is the best chance in nearly two decades to break Labour's long grip on power here. Voting Conservative means we can deliver the better deal and positive change for our town that every resident deserves.
From our parks to our buses, from our bins to our roads, local councillors look after the things that truly matter in our day-to-day lives. Councillors also decide how much Council Tax we all pay - the people of Reading currently have to pay the highest rates in Berkshire - which is why the party in charge of Reading Borough Council matters.
Conservatives know that councils have a duty to manage your money wisely and to deliver efficient, cost effective services. If elected, that's what our candidates intend to do to make a real and lasting difference for the better for our community.
For too long, the Labour Party has been letting Reading down which is why we need your support on May 5th.
So we are delighted to be able to offer you that choice by fielding our strongest, most diverse and inclusive slate of Conservative candidates for Reading yet.
