Spotland & Falinge Ward
I have lived in Rochdale for over six years.
I am a partner in an insurance brokerage that currently employs 32 staff with four UK offices and one overseas office. Additionally, I am the technical advisor to the the British Insurers Brokers Association representing over 2,500 independent brokers nationwide.
For over seven years I have been happily married to my wife Aisha who is a primary school teacher and we have two young children, Safiya and Eisa.
My voluntary work has included (locally):
Voluntary Work (nationally)
Spotland has seen itself fall behind other wards both in terms of local business and community spirit. It does not help also when the elected councillor, who I am standing against, missed nearly one in five meetings. Can you imagine not going into work every Monday, I doubt you would keep your job.
I want to build a strong community spirit in Spotland.
I have a business background and will happily nuture and develop our youth in order for them to be able to build their own businesses.
Additionally, I will push forward plans to enable existing businesses to develop and prosper by buying local.
Our youth need somewhere for recreational actives, let's work together to make this happen.
I will continue to support all charities and not-for-profit organisations and ensure awareness is raised for them.
Please vote for me and be assured that I will always strive to do the best for the people of Spotland and Falinge.
