Name: Mike Whitehouse
I am very pleased to be the Conservative candidate for Claines, having narrowly lost last year by 17 votes. I believe my business background will enable me to use innovation and creativity to make the most of budgets in these tight financial times. If elected, I will be supporting a freeze in council tax next year, making it three years with no increase thanks to the Conservatives. I strongly support investment in developing new businesses in Worcester and supporting those existing businesses to develop further. I know that there is a need for additional dog and waste bins in the Claines area and so will be working hard to ensure some of the funding made available is used locally. Claines is a beautiful area and if elected I will fight against unsustainable developments.
