Ward: Failsworth West
Other councillors representing this Ward:
I was elected as a Councillor for Failsworth West in 2012, where I live with my family.
During my time on Oldham Council so far I have been heavily involved in the 'Fairness campaigns'. I successfully lobbied First Bus to slash their fares for residents by 30 per cent, for example, and also worked hard to help sign local people up to the collective energy buying scheme that collectively saved Oldhamers thousands of pounds on their energy bills.
I am active in my ward holding two static surgeries each month and dozens of street surgeries.
I am also involved in local community groups as a musician in the Failsworth Community Band and as secretary of the Failsworth Grassroots steering committee.
Outside of the council I am currently studying for a degree in mathematics with the Open University.
My priorities for Failsworth are to be an accessible ward councillor who is readily available to give advice and support when required by my constituents.
I have already been involved with the formation of a number of residents and home watch groups who take responsibility for the cleanliness and community safety in their area. I would like to see many more of these formed.
Finally, I would like to see the re-design of Failsworth District Centre to make it much safer and incorporate more independent local businesses to provide greater choice for residents.
