Liberal Democrat Party
South Middleton Ward
I’ve lived in Alkrington for most of my life, with husband and 3, now grown up, children. I attended Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School as it was. I’m in my mid 50s, a part-time teacher working for a development charity and treasurer of a local charity shop.
The Liberal Democrat ethos and policies – working towards a fairer society – suit me best, but I hope all parties, locally and nationally, can work together for the collective good in austere times ahead.
At a local level, I will campaign for a proportion of Middleton’s highways budget to be spent repairing the roads and pavements in Alkrington. Terry Smith and I have already carried out a detailed consultation with residents to identify the areas most in need of urgent repair. Difficult choices will need to be made about funding in the coming years, so I know serving as a local councillor would be a challenging and difficult task. I salute the many hard-working, long-serving councillors of every party who have worked hard for their communities and, if elected, shall aim to do my best.
Middleton Lib Dems’ priorities will be:
Better Roads and Pavements
Protecting our environment
A stronger voice for local people
