Local Conservatives are all set for the 3 May 2018 council election as they announce a full list of candidates in bid to take over the running of Milton Keynes Council.
With the Labour Party having the same number of Councillors, the former has been relying on the support of Liberal Democrat Councillors in getting decisions through. Conservatives now believe that after four years of a failed Labour-Lib.Dem administration, enough is enough and it is time for a change.
The announced list of candidates broadly reflects the diversity of Milton Keynes. Approved candidates include a university lecturer, retail manager, farmer, former facilities manager of HM Prisons, an information systems analyst, former GP surgery administrator and private sector consultant among others.
Commenting on the list of candidates, Conservative Council Group Leader, Cllr. Alex Walker said "We have a vibrant group of candidates from all walks of life, backgrounds and cultures - just like residents in Milton Keynes. I am proud of the work our team is putting in, letting residents know that a Conservative led Milton Keynes Council will fix our roads, sort out street homelessness and ensure our City is once again a vibrant place to live and do business"
