My politics: Councillor Ruth O'Keeffe

Councillor Ruth O'Keeffe

Party: Independent

Division: Lewes

Elected: 5 May 2005

I have always been interested in empowering local people, so that they can make a difference and influence decisions themselves.

I will campaign on environmental issues, especially the upkeep and maintenance of Lewes and the town’s services. I also examine specific issues such as traffic, parking, floods and housing.
