Your Labour Candidate for Castle Division
Scarborough needs a strong voice on the new Council, not a Government echo-chamber. Colin Challen
I’m Colin Challen, Labour’s candidate in this year’s elections for North Yorkshire Council. I was born in Scarborough and live in the Old Town part of Castle Ward. My key priorities are the environment, not least the climate crisis, and culture, seeking to make Scarborough an attractive place to live and visit—so vital for our local economy. Scarborough needs a strong voice on the new Council, not a Government echo-chamber.
I have been a leading campaigner against climate change and recently delivered a set of questions to the local MP asking what he was doing to avert the climate crisis. Shamefully the MP wouldn’t or couldn’t answer any of his constituents’ questions. For our children’s sake we need real action, not bland assurances. But it is par for the course for this Government, which dithers about every real crisis it faces. North Yorkshire County Council, unlike hundreds of councils up and down the UK has NOT declared a climate emergency.
