City Councillor for King's Hedges Ward
My name is Martin Smart and I have helped represent King’s Hedges ward since 2014. I am committed to working hard for residents and approach it in a serious fashion. I love the great community atmosphere in King’s Hedges and will do all I can to support this ward and the residents who live there.
If a resident has a problem then I generally attend to that as a matter of priority, meeting in person if desired and usually as soon as possible. If appropriate, I will then take the matter forward to the best of my ability regardless of apparent barriers. I have a never say never approach to casework with residents.
As one of your elected representatives I will perform my role to the best of my ability. I consider that I have a moral duty to do the right thing and will alway be driven by that. I stand for a fair society where everyone has an equal chance to make what they will of their life and I will always challenge discrimination where I come across it. I want to be a part of a robust administration for Cambridge and will contribute whatever I can toward that end.
I understand the nature of the problems that some of us face in our lives but I will always present a positive approach. I believe that a can-do approach is best for the challenges that both the individual and the greater society face, both in living a good life, and in creating a better world for us all to live in.
