Local Election 2010

Terrance  William  Smith

Terrance William Smith

Liberal Democrat Party
East Middleton Ward

I am 54 years old, married for 35 years with 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I’ve lived in Middleton all my adult life. I work for a hotel chain in Manchester as well as being a voluntary youth worker in Middleton - something I am really passionate about.

I have had 12 years experience on the Council, fighting for Middleton and in particular for young people and regeneration.

4 years ago, voters in this Middleton East ward elected Labour’s David Murphy to be their councillor. In 2007, he moved to Spain, but has flown back to two Council meetings a year in order to claim a total of £20,000 of your money. This is the sort of abuse that has outraged people across Britain, and we shouldn’t tolerate it in Middleton.

I’ve been working hard for our communities for the last 2 years. For example, we’ve campaigned for a new play area in Alkrington, helped set up a new community group in Middleton Junction, and have gone with residents to Middleton Township on many occasions.

I’m not asking you to vote for me on what I may do after May; I’m asking for your vote on what I have done for our community for the last 2 years, and will carry on doing.

Middleton Lib Dems’ priorities will be:

Better Roads and Pavements

  • A yearly programme of road resurfacing to keep our highway network in reasonable condition.
  • Facilities for our young people .
  • Middleton needs better facilities for young people run by young people. More projects should help build bridges between young and old.

Protecting our environment

  • We will continue to promote the option of blue bins for paper and cardboard. 
  • Champion a cleaner, greener environment in our local communities. 
  • Creating a safe network of routes for walkers and cyclists.

A stronger voice for local people

  • Support residents regardless of their political beliefs get the best out of Middleton Township. 
  • Working closely with the police to reduce anti-social behaviour. 
  • Trying to secure more funds for local priorities.
