"I have always lived in Romford and have witnessed the neglect that the area has suffered from Tory mismanagement. I work as a Human Resources Manager with a background in public service, so I have also seen first-hand the damaging effect of the Tory Austerity programme. As a commuter, I want to see some positive action by the Council to solve the chronic traffic problems which affect Romford every day and ensure our community really gets the best out of the opportunities that Cross Rail can bring".
