Central Rochdale Ward
My name is Iftikhar Ahmed, I am Labour Party Candidate from Central Rochdale. I live locally with my wife, son and daughter.
It has been an honour to represent central Rochdale for the past four years as a Councillor.
For last six years Rochdale has seen its funding cut by the Tory Government by almost £200 million, propped up in coalition by the Liberal Democrats for 5 years. At the same time, many wealthier Councils in the South of England have actually had their funding increased by the Tories and Liberal Democrats.
Remember the Conservatives supported by the Liberal Democrats brought in the hated bedroom tax.
Despite these Tory/Lib Dem cuts, locally Labour has managed the Council’s budget carefully and protected the front line services that people value most.
As a Councillor I have also been working hard on issues that affect our areas.
I live locally in the heart of our ward and care passionately about our area. My local area is the same as your area, so I obviously want the best for community just as much as you do.
I hope you will vote for me so that I can continue to be an active, hard-working councillor for Central Rochdale and to be a strong voice for our area on the Council.
