Your vote is important

Have your say

Knocking on doors in the run-up to the general election, an important task has been informing people that they will also be voting to elect a ward councillor. Many are not aware of this.

We know Labour will still have a big majority and run Sheffield council, so why is this important?

Austerity has led to massive cuts to public and council services.

The Community Assemblies have disappeared along with their support worker.

Ward councillors now find themselves in direct contact with more individuals and community groups in real need of help and support and struggling to find it.

City councillors have a vital role in the communities they represent.

Your vote in the city council elections on May 7 is important.
