Grant Shapps is Chairman of the Conservative Party and MP for Welwyn Hatfield
Today, thousands of people will go to the polls to vote in the local elections. It’s an important time for us and every vote will count.
We need to really get behind our councillors in this election. At town halls up and down the country they’re working hard – cutting waste and cutting council tax – one of the largest household bills after your rent or mortgage. We need to support this great work in local government. To do that, we need to show exactly what we’re achieving as Conservatives in central government - important things we’re doing to support people who want to work hard and get on, and things we can be proud of.
