Luisa Sullivan

Buckinghamshire Candidate

The role of a county councillor is predominately that of a communicator. Being able to engage with all residents and community groups and balancing the needs and interests of residents, with council policy and its services, at all council tier levels.

I have been active in the community for many years, and have built solid relationships with many of our community groups. 

Over these last 25 years you’ve given me an insight and understanding of how our local community feels about their environment, its needs, its development and growth and aspirations for our younger generation.

There are many developments and projects happening in The Ivers. Alongside these, we need to plan for more community facilities, develop the road network and address the congestion problems.

We need to balance the need for housing, with affordable and cost saving initiatives like shared equity and self-build opportunities, alongside protecting our precious Green Belt and open spaces.

A tall order and this task requires your County Council representative to hold integrity, honesty and rational level thinking, to be an effective communicator, negotiator and team member, able to work with different local authority tiers and in partnership with other organisations to deliver positive outcomes for our community.

If you would like to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Ralph Bagge

Buckinghamshire Council Candidate

I have lived in Stoke Poges since 1995, and both our children went to The Stoke Poges School, where my wife teaches music. I started taking an interest in local politics around the time of the Bells Hill redevelopment and was elected to Stoke Poges Parish Council in 2010, being elected Chairman the following year. I was elected to South Bucks District Council, representing Stoke Poges in 2011, where I became Chairman of the Planning Committee, and after re-election, in 2015 I became Leader of the Council, working regularly with County colleagues on issues including housing, health and the local economy. With my experience of local government, you can rely on me to represent your concerns effectively at County Hall.

I believe that South Bucks is a great place to live in – we have beautiful tree-lined roads and the openness of the Green Belt while enjoying the excellent road, rail and air access. I’m passionate about preserving our quality of life and ensuring that South Bucks remains a great place to live. I'm determined to see off the threat from Slough to build on our Green Belt and to preserve the semi-rural character of our quiet villages that we all enjoy so much.
