If elected 19 year-old James Canning would provide a fresh face at County Hall.
He has lived locally since he was one and been educated at local schools. James knows the area well and is standing for change in the way that Dorset County Council is run.
“Too often the needs of young people are ignored when decisions are being taken,” says James. “I am totally opposed to the cuts we’ve seen to our Youth Clubs which are now totally reliant on volunteers. I am also totally opposed to the cuts in local bus services. Many young people don’t currently have a car so these cuts will lead to even more cars on our roads, adding to pollution and congestion.”
