Councillor - Howdenshire
Victoria Aitken was first elected to East Riding of Yorkshire Council 2013 to represent the residents of Howdenshire Ward on East Riding Yorkshire Council. I live in North Cave, which is one of the larger villages in the ward.
I was born, grew up and was educated in the East Riding.
Being local is very important to me and it is a real privilege to be part of the Howdenshire community. I have been both an employer as well as employed, and a mother and recently a grandmother, I know what is important to our community.
I have been a strong independent voice for our area and have fought for the best for our residents. As a councillor I have worked alongside residents calling for better flood defences, appropriate development, safer communities for both children and adults, as well as protecting services like roads, libraries, schools, and health to name but a few.
I would like to continue to work to get the best possible outcomes for our community.
