Milkstone & Deeplish Ward
I am both delighted and honoured to be standing for election in Milkstone and Deeplish Ward again.
I was proud to have previously represented and served the people of Milkstone and Deeplish for 18 unbroken years, a Ward in which I have lived all my life and which is dear to my heart.
Since coming off the Council in 2010, I have continued to be stopped by local residents when I am out and about asking me when I am going to return. I’ve never really been away from local politics – just a little less active – mainly due to helping with caring for an elderly couple who were family friends but who have now passed away. Recent events and increased requests from residents for help has made the decision to return to active politics that much easier.
People tell me that they are fed up and feel let down by their current Labour Councillors.
When I look at the state of our once proud Town, I truly despair. You only have to take a walk around our area to know how much Labour have neglected us and let us down:
As a lifelong resident of Milkstone and Deeplish, I am no stranger to the area and I share the worries and concerns of local residents.
The priorities of Milkstone and Deeplish residents are my priorities too.
Therefore, if elected I can assure you that I will do my best to ensure that our area receives its fair share of Council funds.
I am committed to Milkstone and Deeplish Ward and its residents.
Unlike the other candidates, I do not live in Milnrow, Healey or Balderstone and am therefore the only true local candidate – the only one who lives in the ward and knows it best!
