Elect Sushila Dhall in North ward on 19 September
The by-election on 19th September provides the opportunity for North Oxford residents to elect an experienced campaigner with a proven track record of working for you all year all round.
Sushila Dhall is a well-known and respected community activist with 14 years experience as a former County and City Councillor. She currently chairs the Oxford Pedestrian Association and the Rewley Park Board of Directors. A graduate of St. Hilda’s College Sushila has lived in North Central Oxford for more than 20 years. Her daughter attends Cherwell School. She works as a psychotherapist for the public and charitable sectors, working with marginalised groups and vulnerable people. Her interests are transport, planning, and social welfare.
Sushila says: I pledge to work hard to:
the Area Committees abolished by Labour giving North Oxford people real power with decision making on planning issues, a devolved budget and powers to make a difference.
the centralisation of power into the hands of a select few councillors and give all elected councillors, and the people they represent, real power on committees.
planning policies to better protect our city’s historic and natural environment
the City Council spending on multi-million pound vanity projects whilst making millions of pounds worth of cuts to front line services and staff redundant.
the Covered Market by opposing Labour’s proposed inflation-plus rent rises and the introduction of chain stores.
on air pollution in Summertown and the City Centre. The City Council have just released yet another air quality strategy which will fail like the last one to deliver improvements.
