CROWBOROUGH LIFE JANUARY 4 2016 - Lib Dem Candidate Jane Clark

There is a vote on Thursday 21st January to elect a Wealden District Councillor to represent Crowborough East.

In the second election address, here is information regarding the Liberal Democrat candidate:

Jane Clark has lived just outside Crowborough East ward for over 27 years. She has run a business in Crowborough for over 20 years. Her children attended Beacon Community College and her son and young family still live in the town.

Jane was District Councillor for 12 years representing East Ward, not seeking re-election in 2011 as family commitments had increased significantly and she was still working. Jane has a record of achievement behind her, including setting up clued up (a one stop shop for young people), establishing the farmers market, ensuring the political will to set up the very successful Crowborough Community Centre. Jane has always walked the ward and reported litter, overgrown hedges etc.

Jane is standing for the Liberal Democrats as she still believes in fairness and equal opportunity. Jane believes that the huge Conservative majority needs to be challenged. Jane would remind the Conservatives that when they moved the District HQ from Crowborough they promised to hold Full Council meetings around the District and planning decision making meetings in the North as well as in the South. Neither of these promises were kept.

Jane is now retired and has recharged her batteries. Jane says, I am not a career politician. I can promise to work hard for the people of East Ward and Crowborough to ensure that Crowborough is not forgotten and that decisions made are to make Crowborough an even better place to live in.

There are three candidates standing for election: Philip Lunn (Conservative), Jane Clark (Liberal Democrat) and Linda Scotson (Labour).

The vacancy follows the sad death of Peter Cowie. The ward covers Alderbrook, Montargis and Blackness. You can find-out whether you live in the ward by entering your postcode on Wealden District Council website: Find my Councillor.

The election will be held on Thursday 21st January 2016 from 7am until 10pm at Polling Stations at the Tea Room at Wolfe Rec and St Richards Church Hall (check your polling card).

Dear Councillor Mrs Clark,


As a member of a council responsible for a great many historic towns and villages, and also caretaker of the public purse, could I ask you to be especially vigilant against maladministration within the Wealden District Council.


It is my experience that your council has allowed some departments to run riot with taxpayers money.  Some officers have used council resources for their own goals and as a playground for acts of impropriety.  Sometimes to cover up mistakes, and other times to pursue agendas for profit or personal ambitions and desires.


It has taken me more than 20 years to finally reach an understanding with your council about the Generating Station at Herstmonceux.  I hope you agree that we cannot afford to let situations like that develop again to drain the council and lead to widespread bad feeling and mistrust at great cost to the tax payer. 


You were elected to serve the community, not the officers.  You were elected to run the council to the best of your ability, after consideration of the issues that matter.  It is your duty to conserve the historic built and natural environments.  It is also your duty to seek to secure adequate services, education, policing and health care.


These are particularly difficult times, where public funding is under scrutiny against local issues and terrorism and global warming are serious international issues that should be targeted for spending, rather than waste money pursuing lost causes.


Even as I write, identified international dangers are looming and if allowed to escalate unchecked, may put our country and indeed the world as we know it at risk.  We can all play our part by doing what we do to the best of our ability.


If we run a tight ship with a clear desk, when something important finds its way on our laps, we will be better able to deal with it.  We must conserve our energies for fights that matter.


I would be very interested to learn what sustainable policies your council, and your political party are putting in place, and if you agree whatever has been proposed is effective. I should also like to know if you support the current policies or oppose them?


As a resident of Wealden, I am relying on you to do the right thing for your district.  As an inhabitant of planet earth I am relying on you to keep your eye on broader issues and play your part on the international team that is the human race.


Thank you for taking the time to read this message and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future, failing which I will assume that you agree with what I have said and will do all you can to ensure that the generating buildings are accorded their proper status, beginning with the striking of the defective enforcement notice to keep your local land charges register accurate. I am sure you will accept that inaccurate records that hold the potential to cause loss would be a breach of the Fraud Act 2006.


Yours sincerely




Nelson Kruschandl
