Local resident John Freeman explains why he is standing for MP in this general election:
I am a peaceable 75 year old, who loves Whitby and this area, and wants it to thrive. As Chairman of Whitby and District Tourism Association, I have worked to support my local community and was very proud to serve as Mayor of Whitby for three years.
In those roles I have done my utmost to work in co-operation with Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) over the years – but enough is enough.
We local electors must be able to hold SBC to account for the decisions they make on our behalf. By voting for me, we can send a very clear message to the Government, our local MP and SBC itself, that they cannot delay reform any longer.
