Conservative success in the 2014 Broadwater Local Elections

Broadwater local elections 2014

I am extremely pleased to announce a successful result in the 2014 Broadwater Local Elections. Conservatives beat UKIPs by 63 votes which confirms that the Broadwater residents sensibly voted for progress and not protest. Conservatives will now be able to continue with their hard work to make Worthing an even better place to work, live, play and invest in!

Huge thanks to everyone that voted for Conservatives in the 2014 local elections. Worthing, as usual, bucked the trend and increased its number of seats. We see some new fresh faced councillors in other wards around Worthing and you will be able to read about them in this week’s Herald.

A number of Conservative voters I have recently met expressed an interest in becoming a Conservative member. Membership is a bargain at only £25 per year and gives you a say on candidate selection, enjoy fund-raising events and socialise with many interesting people including of course, our local MP, Tim Loughton.

Thank you to the Broadwater local election voters

I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone that voted for me yesterday in the Broadwater local elections.

At the time of writing, I still have 1.5 hours to wait until the count reveals whether I win the election – the count is at 1.30pm. So far Conservatives have lost control of eight authorities. This is devastating news.

I feel I must share with you a shocking experience which happened while I was working at a Broadwater polling station last night …

Due to lack of other seating, unfortunately I had to sit next to a drunk UKIP teller who arrived smelling like a brewery. I was shocked that he turned up to work drunk and it got worse. He refused to write the polling numbers down because ‘it was a waste of time’ apparently as UKIPs doesn’t have the software to input the numbers. I’m surprised that an organisation of 20 years old (I was advised) does not have adequate software – and UKIPs believe that they have the intelligence to run the country?

It gets much worse … This drunk UKIP teller then advised my colleague and I that he thought it was unfair that Jimmy Saville and other peodophiles who committed crimes back in the 1970s are now being judged by todays standards. He said: “That was just what happened then, it was part of the culture and living standards”.  Our drunk UKIP teller would not accept that it was unfair that women were too scared to speak up. I wonder if all the women who voted for UKIP are aware of its evil and sexist mentality – you want these people to run the country? Farage apologises for his members mistakes, but there seems to be too many mistakes!

The TV media has proved a major disappointment to me over the last few months because it has not educated voters about the difference between Local and European elections. Yesterday many people still didn’t realise they would get two voting slips to complete! Many make local voting decisions based upon what happens nationally e.g. immigration/benefits issues. There should be more TV shows about the difference between local and county services, and what unitary authorities are.  Instead our screens are filled with far too much air time on UKIP’s Farage.

Whatever happens in 1.5 hours time, I know that I keep my integrity intact and have remained ethical. I also know I have worked extremely hard for Broadwater and I really appreciate those Broadwater residents who took the time to thank me yesterday for my ward work.

Well I’m off to get ready for the count! I hope my next blog will be announcing a success story. If not, I hope that next year I can count on your support once again.

Once again, thanks for your support.

Since you put your trust in me as your local councillor in 2010, I have been working hard to support the community and businesses in Broadwater and Worthing. I organised the Royal Wedding party on Broadwater Green in 2011 which raised almost £1500 for Broadwater Community Association.

Community: I successfully campaigned for low ambient lighting in Kitties Field to make it safer for children to play after dark. Pictured with Vic Walker, borough councillor (Broadwater).

Business: £160million GSK investment in Broadwater. Pictured above at GSK with Paul Yallop (left), leader of Worthing Borough Council, and Cllr Bryan Turner borough (Gaisford) and county councillor (Broadwater).

Community: Planting on Worthing Seafront. This was a fantastic community event and it was great to see families across Worthing join in.

Community: I took part in a student mentoring scheme and Enterprise Day at Durrington High School. It was really successful and I hope to be able to roll the schemes across to schools in Broadwater.


22nd May 2014 – Vote for Progress, not Protest, in the Local Elections

Your LOCAL ELECTION  voting slip will look similar to above. It is essential that you understand the difference between your Local and European vote. LOCALLY: Vote for Vicky Vaughan – your Broadwater Candidate

On Thursday 22nd May, the Local and European elections will take place. When you arrive at the polling station, you will be handed two voting slips – one for LOCAL and one for EUROPEAN. It is essential that you understand the difference between the Local and European elections and vote sensibly.

Here is why you should vote for CONSERVATIVES in the LOCAL elections. 


Since you elected me to serve Broadwater in 2010, I have been looking after your off road parking, recycling and waste,  streets and travel, planning, licensing, leisure, housing and many other services as well as raising funds for Broadwater Community Association and campaigning for community schemes. If you don’t vote Conservative, you could see these services deteriorate. It is vital that you vote Vicky Vaughan Conservative on your LOCAL ELECTION VOTING SLIP.

Whoever you decide to vote for in the European elections, think strategically when casting your LOCAL ELECTION VOTE  for Broadwater and Worthing.

  1. LOCALLY: Conservatives has frozen Council tax for four years in Worthing when UKIPs recently voted for a Council Tax increase in Sompting. UKIP councillors will most likely vote for a Council Tax increase in Worthing if they win.
  2. LOCALLY: When the Green Party gained power in Brighton, car parking prices rocketed to £3.50 per hour and £20 per day where as Worthing Conservatives has reduced parking to £1 per hour.
  3. LOCALLY: Since the Green party gained power in BRIGHTON, waste collection services have been rubbish – please excuse the pun! Read this article. Do you want this for Worthing?
  4. LOCALLY: When Lib Dems were last in power they signed Worthing Borough Council car parks over to a 10 year NCP – discouraging investment and alienating shoppers and tourists. They also voted for a rise in car parking charges at a recent Council meeting.
  5. LOCALLY: At the time of writing, some two weeks before the 2014 elections, UKIP has no published local policies for Broadwater or Worthing. All they care about is the EU. What will become of Broadwater and Worthing if you allow them in?

Since Conservatives gained power in Worthing in 2004, we have become a role model for other councils across the UK because we now share some services such as recycling and refuse. This strategic partnership has saved vital funds and retained services for residents across Adur and Worthing, at a time when we are still recovering from the financial mess that Labour left us in.

Whatever your national/European views are, BETTER the devil you know than the angel you don’t. Vote Vicky Vaughan – your Conservative Candidate for the LOCAL ELECTIONS.


EUROPEAN ELECTIONS – Vote for your say. Vote for a referendum. Vote Conservative.

Has the European media hype got you foaming at the mouth? Again think strategically …

Whatever your views of immigration are, at least Conservatives are offering you a chance to vote in a referendum – none of the other parties are. If you want your say – then vote Conservative.

Conservative MEPs will support David Cameron in securing the Three Rs:

  • Reform of the European Union
  • Renegotiation of our relationship with the EU
  • Referendum to let the British people decide – in or out.
