Tom Mayer is standing for Cambridgeshire County Council in Papworth and Swavesey
Tom Mayer has lived in Swavesey for over twenty years and is Cambridgeshire born-and-raised. He went to the local schools, has relied on local buses to get him to work and college, and – like many of us – has received great care from the local NHS. He currently works from home as a social sciences teacher in higher education.
Tom has five priorities in this election, built on Labour’s manifesto for a Fair Cambridgeshire for All:
· A People First public transport system: public bus networks built for rural life with stops and community transport in place to support them.
· Fixing the unfair funding for our schools and colleges to preserve the comprehensive village college system that was designed by rural Cambridgeshire, for rural Cambridgeshire.
· A Council that takes the need to get to net zero CO2 by 2030 seriously, because it’s the right thing to do and because it will create jobs.
· Preserving the NHS – publicly run and free at the point of use – and levelling up social care services.
· And – last but the opposite of least – doing what it takes to come back stronger from this terrible COVID crisis.
Growing up in rural Cambridgeshire, with great public services and strong community spirit, was what brought Tom to Labour. He hates to see the current Council not standing up to the party machine while bus routes stop and youth facilities close because of central government cuts. As a County Councillor, Tom will prioritise investing in the future of people and communities over meeting short-term targets. Tom believes in putting people at the heart of politics and that’s why he’s asking for your vote in this election.
