500 Words From Harold Gregory Conservative Candidate Stoke & Trent Vale

**Archive Story From 2010 Election**

My name is Harold Gregory and I am your local choice for Stoke & Trent Vale. I live in Riverside Road, Trent Vale, and am married with 3 children, one attending St Joseph’s and one at St Teresa’s. I spent 20 years in the Army, serving in the first Gulf War and also in Northern Ireland, as well as many other postings around the world. I now work for Network Rail at Derby, having previously worked at the signal box in Stone until it was closed down. Until recently, I was involved in the local Territorial Army, but was made redundant through Government cuts. I’m now involved with the local Army cadets, and have taken part in many charity fundraising events.

The London Road area needs improvement and investment, more jobs and a nicer environment – Stoke town centre needs attention, and as suggested by others, perhaps a park.
As your local councillor, I would seek to give our area a fair voice on the Council and ensure YOUR views are listened to. I feel that Labour have lost sight of what working people want, and I would work with other parties for the good of the City. I believe that common sense can sort out many of the problems we see around us on an everyday basis.

I don’t have the answers to all the problems, but I will promise to try. I am a local person and am only interested in representing on the Council the ward in which I live. I want to give local residents a voice and help improve our environment. Representing residents will be my main priority, as I feel that the views of the normal working person are often under represented.
