Im a lifelong Labour supporter and following forty years community activisbecame a Labour Councillor for Anfield five years ago.

I lived all my life in the City Centre and was a Youth Worker for many year until I retired. I have served as one of your Councillors since 2008 and currently chair the City Council’s Licensing Committee. I was Liverpool’s Lord Mayor in 2018/19.


The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Liverpool hard. Along with my colleagues in Central Councillors Nick Small and Maria Toolan, I have been working hard through lockdown to support vulnerable residents, promote mental health and wellbeing and protect jobs.


I’m standing for re-election because I want to build on what I’ve helped achieved and support residents as we begin the recovery.

Covid has meant this year has been really tough. I’ve been proud to work with community groups and residents in Clubmoor to provide essential support where it’s been most needed.

Across the city, Liverpool’s Labour Council continues to work hard. All the city’s parks are now protected forever from development, we’re investing £3.2 million into Children’s Centres and have helped hundreds of people at risk of sleeping rough since the start of the pandemic.

 

There’s much more that needs doing though – I hope you’ll vote for me on May 6th.

Cressington

Tricia O'Brien

I’m proud to be standing for re-election as your local councillor.

 

Liverpool has been decimated by Lib Dem-Tory cuts, with over 64% of the budget removed by Ministers.

 

Despite the swingeing cuts, Labour has protected vital public services such as Children’s Centres, Garston Library, Garston Lifestyles and the One Stop Shop. We’ve built 17 new schools, created thousands of jobs and apprenticeships and provided new homes for local families.

 

There’s lots been done, but there’s much more to do in Cressington and we need a Labour Council fighting for our city.

 

I hope I can count on your support on Thursday 6th May.

I’ll continue to keep working to make sure as a Labour council, we continue to serve in the interest of the people and make sure that we support the hardworking families who deserve more than a tory government.

I share the commitment and passion to tackle poverty shown by both Ian and Jane before and during the pandemic.

I’m in full support of the campaign led by Ian and agreed by the Council for the ‘Right to Food’ to become law.

 

I know the importance of good employment in tackling poverty. Through my company, Seascope Martime Training, which I started in 2004, we’ve now trained and placed in employment over 3000 Liverpool residents.

Nick Crofts

I’m proud to have represented Knotty Ash since 2012. Even after the terrible Government cuts, we have got a lot done for our community.
But there is much work to do to. Recent events have shown that the Council must work hard to regain the trust of residents. I pledge that I will continue to be active, campaigning and visible – so the Council can be properly held to account.
Our local community groups have been a lifeline for many during the Pandemic. We will continue to support these groups – so they can do their

Coronavirus has dominated our lives over the past year. We have seen friends and family fall sick and lost loved ones. As a councillor it’s been a challenge, but I’ve been overwhelmed by how residents, community groups and council officers have worked together to support the m vulnerable. I’ve tried to make sure people who were sheltering or isolated got food and other supplies. There are many challenges and they’ll continue in future. Helping our pubs and restaurants re-open, preventing evictions, helping children catch up on their education, creating jobs, litter picking. They’ll be my priority this year and next.

I am a trustee at both West Derby School and Lister Steps and I understand the damaging impact both austerity and COVID-19 has had on our children’s education.

I want to see Tuebrook & Stoneycroft thrive with fantastic public services, community events, and flourishing high streets, instead of seeing poverty rise and vital services cut due to Tory Austerity.
