Catching Up With Jane Hunt

#ThingsElliottSays have been catching up with Jane Hunt and the Nottingham Conservatives.

For the past few weeks we have been leafleting and completing local surveys in Leen Valley to hear from residents' views. #ThingsElliottSays is pleased to say that the locals are very supportive of Jane and have also raised a lot of important issues which need solving. The worst part of this whole thing is seeing how quickly the daylight is disappearing in the evening.

Jane has also launched her new website. She is so far focusing on three main campaigns. Jane's 'pot hole patrol' has been very popular. A lot of roads in Nottingham are in need of repair, in many places the Victorian cobbles are showing through. The Conservatives in Government have recognised the problem and have give an extra £617,446 to Nottingham to help.

Jane has said "Investing in Britain’s roads and infrastructure is a key part of the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan to secure a better future for Britain – and this is just one part of that. By fixing Britain’s roads the Conservatives are supporting local businesses, and making life that bit easier for the hardworking people in Nottingham who rely on them to get around."

Jane is also campaigning to get rid of the horrendously unfair Workplace Parking Tax that was introduced by the Labour City Council. This is not only causing business problems, which in turn effect wages and the amount of jobs, but is also meaning employees are often having to pay for parking at their own workplace. How unfair.

Jane has also come out in support of Robert Halfon MPs campaign to 'Stop the Hospital Car Parking Rip Off'. Jane and Rob Halfon is campaigning for hospital car parking in the UK to be free. Hospital car parking fees often effecting the most ill in society and are outrageously priced. The QMC has been highlighted as one of the worst hospitals in the country charging £4 for the first hour. This needs to stop. Jane has thus wrote a letter in the Nottingham Post saying "I am a supporter of reform of car-parking charges at our NHS hospitals, and recent events show we are seeing the change required."

Rob Halfon MP is backing Jane and her campaign in stopping outrageous charges at the QMC.
