I am a lifelong Witney resident, father of one and public servant in the fire service for over twenty years. Witney is not just my home but my life, and this town is worth protecting. Michael Brooker, Witney South
I work to make Witney cleaner, greener and fairer. I love how the people of Witney organise to make life better in clubs, issue groups and religious groups. Councillor Ruth Smith, Witney East Candidate (Witney Central Cllr)

Witney West Town Council By-Election
After a career as a probation officer and then as a civil servant in what is now the Ministry of Justice, I am now retired. My wife and I have lived in Witney for the past sixteen years. I have been a member of the Labour Party since the early eighties.
Labour Councillors make a difference. West Oxfordshire Community Transport, the Witney Baby Bank, the Witney Land Army all exist and thrive thanks to the initiative and drive of Labour Councillors at all levels of local government. They have proved invaluable resources for the community. Labour has long campaigned for the Shores Green Junction, and now at last a Labour County Councillor will be overseeing its construction.
I would be glad to represent residents of Witney West ward, and contribute on your behalf to the excellent work of the Labour led Town Council.
I am passionate about making Chipping Norton an even better place to live for all. I would be proud to join my colleagues in standing up for Chipping Norton's people and doing all we can to mitigate the worst effects of the Tory government. Steve Akers, Chipping Norton
I believe passionately that the role of a councillor is to improve the quality of life for all residents, and I will argue for greater involvement of younger citizens in decision making. Sharon Wheaton, Chipping Norton

An experienced Councillor, I’m committed to making Woodstock and Bladon safer, cleaner and greener and improving local services, which haven’t always grown with our town. Veronica Oakeshott, Woodstock and Bladon
