Swindon UKIP has four candidates in the Parish Council Elections 2017
Martin Costello - Eldene Nathan McGlynn - Penhill Steve Halden - Walcot and Park North Adrian Costello - Eastleaze and Shaw
Martin Costello was the UKIP candidate for Eldene Votes 299 2017
Martin Costello has lived in Eldene for almost 10 years and over this time he has witnessed the degeneration of the area at first-hand - this is what prompted him to get involved and personally do something about it.
He has also served as a Special Constable for the Wiltshire Constabulary and is extremely passionate about social tolerance and equality for all.
Martin wants to ensure that the anti-social behaviour as seen recently around Morrision's is dealt with strongly so people are no longer intimidated when out and about in Eldene. He is also deeply concerned with rise of burglary’s in the area.
Although fully committed to his community, Martin strongly opposes the parishing system and is disgusted how it’s pushed people into poverty.
He feels funding shortfalls should be made up by central government by scrapping folly’s such as HS2 and the foreign aid budget to North Korea.
He believes morally that a referendum should have been held on this issue to ask whether Swindon agrees to this.
He is committed to seeing this happen given that there is no upper limit to what subsequent years tax can rise to and fears for those financially vulnerable in our community.
Let’s get the ‘Fox in the Hen-House’ and hold the Council to account!

Nathan McGlynn was the UKIP candidate for Penhill Votes 274 25% 3rd Ten more votes would have been elected
Nathan McGlynn lives in Penhill
The Penhill area needs more parking spaces and a strong local voice to protect community services.
More effort is needed to tackle the litter problem and other forms of anti social activity.
Nathan McGlynn works for a security company and he also gives many of his weekends working as a volunteer to improve safety on the streets at night.
His interests are rugby and football and quiz nights at his local pub.
Manage Parking Utilise some of the green space to accommodate more parking spaces to solve the parking problems. Penhill was not originally planned to hold so many cars and the area must be developed to accommodate the parking problem.

Steve Halden was the UKIP candidate for Walcot and Parks Votes 403 20% 2017
Steve Halden lives in Park North. UKIP believe we should build more council houses. UKIP want decent homes and jobs for all.
Steve Halden believes that is the the right of every young working family to have a decent home to raise their children. The young generation are the flower of the nation. We must help them make a good start in life.
1.4 million people are waiting for a council house and the cost of buying or renting a home in the private sector is beyond the reach of most young working people. The young generation have been sold down the river on housing.
Britain has the worst trade deficit in the developed world so we must do more to support British Manufacturing Industry and create more well paid jobs for the British working class.
UKIP is the only party that supports the young generation, the British working class and British Manufacturing Industry.

Adrian Costello was the UKIP candidate for Eastleaze & Shaw Votes 56 9% 4th
Adrian Costello lives in Eastleaze Age 44 Occupation: Power Electronics Service Engineer
Adrian has been living in Swindon all his life and has been a resident of Eastleaze for over 21 years. As a candidate to represent the people of Eastleaze and Shaw, Adrian had this to say. “I am proud to be a Swindonian and I want the best for our diverse mix of cultures.
By integration and working together we can make our community a better place to live, work and play. As a Parish councillor I will strive to serve you on local issues such as anti-social behaviour & loneliness by encouraging support for our local community groups”.
Heritage Maintain our local Heritage by objecting to all planning applications to build within the Essential Setting of Lydiard Park.
Family Support local families by keeping our children’s centres open and encourage funding for these facilities.
Litter/Recycling Help to tackle the litter problem in West Swindon by addressing local firms such as mobile fast food chains and hand car wash outlets to provide adequate waste disposal.
Personally campaign to bring back the recently removed large recycling bins at our local centres if financially viable.
Anti-social behaviour Help to tackle anti-social behaviour by encouraging more PCO’s/Bobbies on the beat and promote support for our local community groups.
Parishing I do not condone the new parishes and I’m appalled the increase in council tax will push more into poverty. The funding shortage from central government could be made up by scrapping folly's such as HS2 and ensuring large corporate firms pay their tax.
