My name is Michelle Pointer. I have lived in Buckinghamshire for most of my life, and in Aylesbury for the last 25 years – 13 of those years in Aylesbury North-West.
I have been horrified to watch Buckinghamshire Council’s decimation of the services for children and families over the last decade. When my children were young, the local Children’s Centre was an absolute Godsend – I really don’t know how I’d have managed without it. The idea that families no longer have local access to these is so sad, and so wrong!
Not to mention the gradual phase out of home to school transport for children with additional needs!
I would like to be a voice for the families and working people of Aylesbury that have been ignored for so long. If I am elected to Council, I will be a voice for these people, holding the Council to account for the decisions they make, and standing up for the working people and families of Aylesbury.
