hero_Lynne_crop-1.jpgVote For LYNNE O'DONOGHUE On 16th September
FOR SANDWICH TOWN COUNCIL 

A VIBRANT and INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY
Lynne wants to improve communication between the Council and town by reintroducing the newsletter and holding regular surgeries where residents can discuss their issues face-to-face. Interactive communication is vital!

Promote Tourism
Lynne will support Sandwich tourism, working with the district council’s White Cliffs Country initiative. As we emerge from the dismal days of the pandemic, Sandwich must continue to upgrade and promote its extensive tourism offer, helping businesses and hospitality outlets in our community to flourish.

Protect The Environment
We need to sort out rubbish collections, litter, overflowing bins and the cleanliness of streams and waterways.
Lynne wants the Town Council to carry out a plastic audit. What is the extent of our plastic usage? How much of this could be eliminated entirely? What percentage is recycled? Are alternatives available?

Stand Up For Residents
One of the many reasons why Sandwich is such a great place to live is its thriving local community. Residents of all ages need a fair deal. As a trustee of Age Concern, Lynne is all too aware of the need for a care home in Sandwich. While the absence of a proper social care strategy, despite years of promises by this government, is a national issue, Lynne believes grassroots lobbying can still make a big difference. Our town has an older demographic. It deserves better.

Lynne Writes:

I hope you will vote for me. Please get in touch by email or phone if you would like to discuss any particular issues or simply stop me in the street for a chat.  
As a Town Councillor between 2015 and 2019, I have hands-on experience of council work and can hit the ground running, working hard on your behalf to resolve the many ongoing issues confronting our wonderful town. I sit on several Town Council committees and am particularly proud of having been involved in the renovation of the Museum in 2016.

I moved to High Street in 2006, when my late husband and I retired here, but I have known the area for a long time, as my parents used to live in Minster.

I lived overseas for many years, working first as a journalist, later running a translating and copywriting business, and then as Editor of ‘Secretariat News’, the UN’s New York in-house newspaper. My last job was serving the UN’s peacekeeping mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, monitoring political affairs and supporting the conflict survivors.

I am proud to be a trustee of the Sandwich Medieval Trust, Gazen Salts Nature Reserve and Age Concern.
