Hopwood Hall Ward
I have been privileged to serve the residents of Hopwood Hall (Heywood & Middleton) for the last 17 years. In all of my time as a councillor I have put the interests and concerns of local people first.
Local elections are an opportunity for people to have their voice heard on a range of local issues and they are not just about national politics. However, we must not forget that decisions taken by central government, particularly on the amount of money we have to spend on local services, impacts upon us all. I believe that only Labour stands up for local communities and can protect our essential public services from the worst impact of government imposed cuts.
As a councillor I have in the past served as the Chair of the Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee and I am currently the assistant to Councillor Neil Emmott the portfolio holder for Corporate and Regulation on Rochdale Council. I have represented the borough at the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) on planning and housing issues and I am one of the Council’s representatives attending the Pennine Care Trust meetings.
I have always worked hard for the residents of Hopwood Hall Ward:
These local elections are important to everybody who has the opportunity to vote and I hope that you will make sure that your voice is heard loud and clear on 5 May.
It would be an honour to continue to represent the people of Hopwood Hall Ward for another four years and I hope that I can continue to rely on the support of the electors at the ballot box on Thursday 5 May.
