Littleborough Lakeside Ward
I am a Littleborough man through and through and for the last four years it has been a tremendous privilege to represent the local community where I was born, where I went to school, where I work and where I have lived all my life.
I believe that the first job of a local councillor is to be available to local people to help with any difficulties or problems they may have. Please call me on 07812 238316 if you need help with a problem or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are just a handful of some of the problems that I’ve been able to sort out in our area:
These are just a few examples of the work I’ve done in Littleborough, Summit and Smithy Bridge on behalf of local residents. Along with my fellow ward councillor, Janet Emsley, we hold regular advice surgeries in Littleborough and in Smithy Bridge.
The flooding on Boxing Day was a huge issue for our community and I thank all local residents who mucked-in and worked hard for our village on that terrible day. I worked flat out all day to help local people affected by the floods and made sure we got our fair share of the relief money.
Sadly, it has to be said that the Tory Government has slashed funding for flood defences over the past five years, in spite of the last five winters being some of the wettest on record. A lot of the flooding we witnessed on Boxing Day might not have happened if the Tories had not cut funding to maintain flood defences.
It is important we have a councillor who lives and works in our ward and who knows the ward like the back of his hand like I do. My fight is not against the other parties but for the people of Littleborough, Summit and Smithy Bridge and therefore I ask for your support on 5 May.
May I thank you for kindly taking the time to read my election pitch on Rochdale Online.
