Dean Trotter for Blenheim Park

p1000714cDean Trotter was, earlier this week, selected as the Labour candidate for Blenheim Park ward for this May’s local elections. What follows are some words from Dean:

I’m standing for Labour because I believe in Labour Party values of Equality and Social Justice and I strive for a community where all have the opportunity to contribute. I believe in a community that offers help to those that need it and one that is compassionate and fair.

It appears to me that these values are not the values of the Conservatives or Liberal Democrats, I have seen little compassion during their tenure and we have endured cuts on a national and local level that have hit those that need them the hardest…..that is not the Labour way and it is not my way.

I’m from Lancashire and moved to Westcliff 15 years ago and during my time I have served my local community in various ways, I managed the YMCA for eight years and was with the Homeless Action Resource project for a shorter time. I’m currently a specialist foster carer and in addition I vice chair foster panels for Essex County Council and have recently accepted the Chair position for a local Fostering Agency. I also work closely with the Fostering Network and Chair their East of England Regional Meetings. I’m a freelance trainer and have delivered training to teachers, social workers, foster carers and health professionals.
