Fiona Hutton's policies
Statement to voters
I was born in Sidmouth and went to school in Crediton, and although my work now takes me across the world, I have always been based in Devon.
I run a consultancy from Sampford Peverell, helping social enterprises develop strength, financial stability and professionalism in all sorts of communities. I have watched the sector bend and stretch itself as outsourcing and austerity have battered it, and seen effective, good-value funding contracts operating in the most difficult of conditions, too.
I believe building local partnerships, rather than diving to the lowest common denominator in a reckless search for ‘cheap’, is the way forward. Our hard-won local resources and services can be invested in – the Labour Party is clear about the value it puts on bringing back contracts from the global corporations and big businesses who take our money out and bring zero-hour contracts in.
It’s going to take a great deal of negotiation and convincing argument in the Council Chamber to drive a more positive programme of investment but, after decades of union activism, contract negotiation and committee membership, I feel fit for the job.
There are foundations, networks and resources in expertise, funding and everything we need to create the civic administration we want – but we have to go out and get them. That is not what has been happening with our current Tory-led council. It would be my honour to stand as the candidate for Willand and Uffculme, to turn Labour into the defining political force on the Council.
