The Labour Party has announced the new candidate for Newhaven Dention and Meeching Ward who will be standing in the District election on the 7th May 2015.

Introducing Doug and Jan, Lloyd Russell-Moyle (Labour’s candidate for Parliament in Newhaven) said “I’ve been working with Jan and Doug for the last couple of years and they will be great councillors who will put Newhaven first. They will be a new face to the tired old administration and I welcome supporting them in their election on the 7th May.

Newhaven Denton and Meeching Ward Candidates

jan_doug.jpgDoug Johnson (left): I have lived locally since 1973 and have taught I.T. in a number of schools in Brighton and East & West Sussex, including 12 years at Seaford Head. Recently, I was instrumental in setting up and promoting an e-petition to protest against ESCC’s attempts to sell off the former Grays School site in Western Road.

Jan Woodling (right): I have lived in East Sussex for over 40 years. I have been a teacher in a primary school, in a further education college and in HM Prison, Lewes. I have also worked as a development officer for the Basic Skills Agency, seconded to the Prison Service and later the Probation Service, to advise and develop policy and strategy in education.

As life-long labour supporters, we are both committed to creating a fair society that looks after the interests of all local people, including those with some of the greatest needs.

For real housing provision, real business and job support, real plans and solutions for Newhaven

Doug and Jan need your support to:

  • Make sure the poorest do not suffer most from cuts to council funding
  • Enable the voices of local people to be heard and acted upon
  • Ensure the proposed, excessive housing development planned for Newhaven is based on the needs of local people rather than making profits for property developers
  • Ensure any development includes the provision of affordable, social housing and appropriate infrastructure in terms of school places, health care, transport, etc.
  • Continue the fight to return the beach to the local community
  • Encourage the growth of businesses and jobs in Newhaven and turn it into a ‘living wage’ town
  • Start making progress on resolving the daily log-jam on our roads, the flooding on the east bank, the over-charging from having two water companies and the multitude of problems caused by the incinerator

    Please could you email me and tell me where I can get a couple of posters to put in my bay window. Think this would be good as I’m right next to the Brighton Rd Newhaven.
    Many thanks Michael Derrick
