In the letter Councillor Callaghan sets out six areas in which urgent action by Prime Minister Johnson's new administration can go a long way to making a real difference to the wellbeing of people in Basildon borough:
"Basildon is an extraordinary success story for Britain," said Councillor Callaghan. "From the depths of World War II, rose an economic powerhouse in the heart of the Thames estuary. This is a place that Prime Ministers should shout about.
"Seventy years after a Labour Government brought Basildon new town into existence, you could be the Prime Minister to kick start the next chapter of untold success and opportunity."
Councillor Callaghan finishes his letter with an invite to the Prime Minister to visit Basildon to see for himself the potential the borough has to power growth in our region.
