Tomorrow (Thursday 3rd May) Luton goes to the polls. All 48 seats on Luton Borough Council are up for election and the battle for control of the Council is a tight contest between Labour and the Liberal Democrats. Currently Labour and the Liberal Democrats have 21 seats each, while the Tories hold just 4 and Independent candidates hold 2.
On the doorsteps of Luton people have been telling our candidates and activists how impressed they have been by the changes that have taken place in Luton since the Liberal Democrats took control. The streets are noticeably cleaner, major regeneration of our parks and the town centre has begun, and most importantly of all, Council Tax rises have been kept down to around half of what they were under the final years of Labour rule in Luton.
Luton Liberal Democrats have made a good start in turning our town around, but we know there is much more to be done. Priorities for the next four years include completing the regeneration of Luton’s Town Centre, massively increasing the amount of waste that is recycled, and fighting any plans by the government to impose fortnightly collections of food waste.
On Friday morning Luton will wake up to either a Labour or Liberal Democrat administration. If you share our vision of a cleaner, greener Luton then please use your votes tomorrow to elect our candidates.
Polling Stations are open from 7am to 10pm. Your poll card shows you where to vote.
