“I am delighted to be standing as the Labour and Co-op candidate for Denton & Westerhope ward in the next local election. I already 17 years of experience as a Councillor and I look forward to joining your Labour Councillors Simon Barnes and Brian Hunter who are already very active in the ward. I also have over 30 years of experience as a school governor and look forward to talking to children and young people to find out what they think about their area.
The past year has been challenging but the community spirit shown by residents, throughout the pandemic is inspiring. It’s more important than ever before that we have experienced Councillors who will fight to get the best for Denton & Westerhope. As a team, we would usually carry out regular doorstep conversations with residents but the pandemic has meant we have been unable to get out to meet you.
I’ve missed these conversations so to find out your views so we are now phoning residents to discuss their concerns and also their ideas for Denton & Westerhope. I look forward to meeting many of you in person as soon as it’s safe to do so.”
