Find this funding now
I WOULD like to work with York Central MP Hugh Bailey and YACRO to secure the £66,000 needed from the council to secure the female-only hostel they desperately need (The Press, August 24).
We are soon to prepare proposals for next year’s council budget. Finding the funds for the hostel will be very easy. My suggestions include: abandoning the 20mph campaign, sinking the Arts Barge, ending payment for council staff misemployed as full-time trade union conveners and withdrawing the £1,600,000 donated to Leeds for transport projects in that region.
This letter is not submitted in jest. I entered local politics because I want to help local people and communities. I am appalled that this small amount of funding cannot be found to support those who need our support at a critical time of need.
