My Campaign for Re-Election is Launched

I was delighted to have been asked to stand for re-election as one of your local Councillors for Ramsbottom in the council elections to be held on Thursday 22nd May 2014.

Polling Day is Thursday 22 May 2014

As you know, I live with my wife and children here in Ramsbottom. I work in the legal profession and I am also a school Governor at a Ramsbottom school.

I have been your independent-minded local Councillor for the last 4 years. During that time, I have been campaigning on the issues that matter to us in Ramsbottom — repairing our local roads, retaining our library, pool and leisure centre, working with our local traders and standing up for our town.

I was so proud when our town centre recently won second place in a national “High Street of the Year” award. We all know that Ramsbottom is such a fantastic place to live, work and play—and I want to keep it that way.

As you know, I spearhearded the opposition campaign with RAWS against the AD Waste Plant that was proposed for our town. I was so relieved that our hard work stopped the plant being built, but will continue to fight any appeal brought by Peel Holdings and Tamar Energy.

I have been working closely with Cllr Rob Hodkinson since his election a few weeks ago in the Ramsbottom by-election. Together we are a hard working team that will continue standing up for the residents and businesses of our town.

Whilst I have been able to achieve many things over the last four years, there is still much to do and that is why I am seeking re-election.

I hope that you will support me on Thursday 22nd May. You know that I am passionate about our town and promise that I will always put Ramsbottom first.

My policies for Ramsbottom are detailed above.

If you are in need of a postal vote for the election – perhaps due to being away on holiday, ill-health etc, then contact me as soon as possible.
