Candidates

There has never been a more important time for Conservative supporters locally and nationally to stand up and be counted. We face a resurgence of a form of hard-left Marxist socialism we thought had been defeated in the 1980s and, locally, we now have an unholy alliance of Labour and UKIP mismanaging Basildon Council.

Being a councillor and representing Basildon Borough is a uniquely rewarding experience where you can make a real difference to communities across the borough. You will be joining a team of over 8,000 Conservative councillors across England, making us the largest party in local government. Basildon Borough currently has a team of 19 Conservative councillors but the Council is in No Overall Control and is presently governed by a Labour-led coalition. The Conservatives remain the largest party and it is vital that in the Local Elections next May, we regain our majority and take back control.

Conservatives across Britain are working hard to build a country that works for everyone and this is what you can help deliver in Basildon, Billericay and Wickford.
