The area's MEP has backed two UKIP candidates and said only his party can offer fresh solutions away from dogma and tired old ideas.
UKIP's East Midlands MEP Derek Clark praised John Beaver, who is standing for Gainsborough Town Council East Ward on July 12, and Roy Spicer, who is standing for Bardney Parish Council on July 26.
He said: "Both candidates offer a real chance for voters to change things by taking a fresh, positive look.
"They will put local people first and will fight for their communities in a way the other parties simply don't - people are sick of the cuts which are causing so much despair and hardship."
Mr Beaver, 76, lives in Gainsborough east ward and is married with two daughters. He has three grandchildren and is a retired accountant.
He said cuts to frontline services, such as public libraries, public transport, road repairs and care for the elderly are causing hardship to the people of Gainsborough and while the Government wastes billions of pounds a year on membership of the EU, care for the vulnerable is being slashed.
Mr Spicer, 65, is a retired London bus driver in London for 30 years and has lived in Bardney for six years. He has been married for 43 years and has two children and two grandchildren.
He feels Government is letting the people of Britain down with their austere and sometimes harsh policies and believes in local jobs for local people.
The UK Independence Party exists because none of the old traditional political parties are prepared to accept that the real government of Britain is now being transferred to Brussels.
Our purpose is to restore the authority for governing Britain to our elected parliament in Westminster. We believe that decisions made on behalf of people are made closest to the people, be they local, national or international decisions, which informs our wide-ranging manifesto covering issues right across the political spectrum
