"As the elected representative for Baird and Ore I would like to welcome the fact that my division is within a short bus ride to Hastings Library which has recently had an £8m investment. I understand that savings need to be made within this budget but also wish to protect the interests of those that I represent.
I will work with Hastings Borough Councillors alongside community centres and groups to give the residents of Baird and Ore similar facilities to those provided by Ore Library, which I consider to be key to our community. I ultimately believe that these savings will lead to more effective and inclusive services for the public.
I would encourage residents of Baird and Ore to take part in the public consultation process, furthermore I will soon contact the community centres to initiate discussions on how we can implement these changes.
Please feel free to contact me regarding this issue at firstname.lastname@example.org"
