Mark Craske, Candidate for Hawkendon
Mark has lived in Hawkedon Ward for 29 years and originally worked in Bracknell. Mark now works part-time with the intention of retiring later this year, and would welcome the opportunity to give something back to the community now that he will have the time and opportunity to so do.
Mark’s objective as a Councillor would be to be the voice of Hawkedon Ward residents, putting them, and their interests, at the forefront of all debates and decisions.
In respect of policies, he is opposed to the third runway at Heathrow, basically because the cost and environmental impact is not justified. He is also supportive of council housing and of a more sustainable green approach. This is why, specifically, he wholeheartedly supports Wokingham Borough Labour’s objective of a Citizen’s Assembly on the Climate Emergency which would inform and establish policy for the future.
Mark also believe that all house building in Lower Earley should cease unless or until an infrastructure plan is in place, which developers would have a responsibility to fund.
This election, even at these unusual and challenging times, offers residents an opportunity for change and a change for the better. Mark believes that he can make that difference and seek the support of Hawkedon Ward residents to do so.
