"Cutting petty crime and violence not only in the Town Centre,
but in the surrounding Villages and Towns by working closely with
the local Police to put more Police Officers where they can be seen
and by increasing the use of CCTV coverage."
"I will run an open administration free from corruption. A
cross party cabinet will help to ensure that none of the excesses
that have dogged the previous council will happen again."
"I will bring a new pride to Doncaster, top class facilities
for Sport, Culture and Transport will be actively promoted, though
not at the expense of Education or Social Services. I will seek
funding for these facilities from the private sector. I will make
the tidying of litter and Graffiti throughout the Borough a priority."
"I will actively promote Business in Doncaster to help create
jobs and opportunities. By consulting with local Schools and Colleges,
I will make sure that they provide courses with the correct skills
mix to ensure our citizens have the right qualifications for future
jobs. I am keen to see that Doncaster College achieves University
Status at the earliest opportunity."

vibrant Doncaster benefits everyone. I am not one of the political
class in Doncaster. I want to be Mayor because I can make a difference."
"If you normally vote Labour, but are ashamed of the councils
antics, Ashamed of how squalid they have made Doncaster appear to
the rest of the Country, at least give me your second vote as a
"It doesnt matter which party you normally support or
even if you dont normally vote. On May 2nd YOU have a chance
to elect someone who will work for all of Doncaster."
