Rob Heale is running to become one of the south east regional members of the Co-op National Members Council.

The Members Council aims to represent members within the organisation and put its views to the Co-op board and senior managers, he said.

Mr Heale, who has previously stood in the local elections in Brighton and Hove as a Liberal Democrat, said that he was standing on a platform that includes

  • Reducing the use of plastic packaging and ensuring that the plastic that is used is recyclable
  • 
Enabling regional co-operatives and social enterprises to supply goods and services to the Co-operative where these meet quality standards
  • 
Providing good training and support to Co-op staff and active members
  • Ensuring that there is a suggestions box in store and online so that customers can have a say about items to stock and other issues

Mr Heale added: “Customers, members and staff should be able to work together to ensure that the Co-operative provides a good quality service at a reasonable price to its shoppers in the region.”

“What makes the Co-op different is its commitments to community involvement and environmental protection and I aim to help put these aims into practice”.

Co-op members have until Monday 14 May to cast their votes.
