Boris: Help me cut your council tax

Now more than ever, the responsibility of any Mayor is to treat every penny of Londoners' money with care. Because it's not my money. It's yours. 

And it will only ever be used on the things that take London forward. To invest in transport infrastructure, put more police on the streets, make the Olympics a success and build more affordable housing.

Help Boris deliver 4th council tax freeze

Londoners voted for Boris as their Mayor on the promise of providing value for money and keeping your taxes low.

And he has delivered. Boris has frozen his share of your council tax for 3 years in a row. This has helped many Londoners who suffered 8 years of rises under Ken Livingstone, costing the average household almost £1,000.

Mayor Johnson has now published his draft budget so you can see exactly where your money is going to be spent.

Again he wants to freeze your council tax - for the fourth year in a row.

K&C benefits from Boris's hard work

When you’re working hard, watching your budget, and feel that sometimes keeping all the plates spinning is an impossible task, you have little patience for politicians who make gimmicky announcements  - you want a Mayor who just get things done. Most importantly, you want a Mayor who focuses on the practical things which make your life better and your community safer.

Improvements in Barnet

I shall be backing Boris Johnson again in the 2012 Mayoral Election because, as a pensioner and a resident of the London Borough of Barnet since 1964, I have noticed the improvements in this area since he became Mayor of London.

By freezing council tax again, again and again he’s really helping those on a tight budget cope with rising bills and the ever increasing prices in the shops. Scrapping the wasteful Londoner newspaper to help keep tax down really is the kind of thing we want our Mayor to do.

Heading in the right direction

I’ve lived in Stroud Green in Haringey for ten years now and I love it here.  Though one of the few downsides is the local council. For years has clobbered us with a hefty council tax bill, without much thought for value for money. And before Boris became mayor, the mayor’s share of council tax was going up and up.

So it has been a welcome relief that Boris has been able to put a stop to that - freezing his share for three years in a row.

Bromley much better with Boris

In the almost four years since Boris Johnson was elected Mayor of London, the residents of Bromley have seen a huge number of benefits.
   
Bromley has no Tube stations, yet many borough residents commute into central London so the extension of Oyster pay as you go, after many years of rhetoric but no action by Livingstone, has been of great benefit to Bromley folk. It has made travel on the train not only cheaper but much more convenient.

WATCH: Bendy buses off London's roads

At just after midnight tonight, the bendy bus on route 207 from White City to Hayes by-pass will make it's final journey.

Introduced in June 2002 by Ken Livingstone, bendy buses were unsuitable for London's roads. Too often they were involved in dangerous accidents and it was too easy to avoid paying.

Click 'read more' to watch the video and find out more what Boris has delivered for London.

Delivering for Redbridge

I’ve lived in Redbridge all of my life and have witnessed the vast improvement in our borough which has come about since Boris was elected Mayor in 2008.

In the eight years Ken was in charge, the only effect he managed to have on Redbridge was to raise City Hall’s share of council tax by a staggering 153%, squeezing every household.

Residents in the area, including myself, felt these rises were not only unjustified - we didn’t benefit from the extra tax we were paying. Ken only focused on the inner boroughs, neglecting the outer areas such as Redbridge.

Kingston better with Boris

Kingston is a great place to live.  However we were the forgotten borough when Ken Livingstone was in power.

Boris has changed all of that and now I’m noticing the improvements.

I’m particularly impressed with the campaign to make Kingston’s buses safer. I’ve noticed more police at the local train and bus stations, so it’s no wonder that crime on buses has fallen by 15% with Boris at the helm. Places like Surbiton, New Malden and Chessington are reliant on public transport and people need to feel safe using it.

Progress in Lewisham

It's an exciting time to be a Londoner. Next year our city will be in the spotlight with the Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It is also a time to reflect on the last three and a half years of London under the stewardship of Mayor Boris Johnson.
  
Since being elected in May 2008 I have seen Boris working hard to deliver for London and Lewisham - moving away from the waste under Ken Livingstone.
