Congratulations to Labour’s Dan Toinko newly elected to Flitwick Town Council.
There was a vacancy on the Town Council and Labour’s candidate Dan Toinko was nominated and was elected unopposed. Are the Conservatives not interested or willing to stand up for the community?
Flitwick Town Council is important as it provides some local services and acts as the voice of the town. It is always consulted by Central Bedfordshire Council on planning and other local issues.
Flitwick is a growing town and more housing development is planned. It is vital that services and facilities such as GP services and schools are expanded before the housing is built. We need local employment opportunities and support for local businesses.
Dan represents West Ward and serves the whole of Flitwick. He will bring a fresh Labour voice to local government.
Dan has lived in Flitwick since 2011 and is a Chartered Accountant. He is a school governor at Templefield. Dan’s eldest child is starting Flitwick Lower this year and his youngest attends a Flitwick pre-school. On being elected Dan said: “I am delighted and honoured to become a Town Councillor and regret that there was no ballot. I am ready to get going and pledge to:
- Serve all residents, to consult, listen and be available to residents and businesses;
- Continue campaigning to make Temple Way safe for children walking to school. I helped set up an online petition for a pedestrian crossing and a 20mph limit last year. Over 1,400 signed, but so far there is only a vague promise of traffic calming;
- Demand more resources for the local GP surgery;
- Campaign for better rail services and improved access to the railway station.”
