Local Elections 2023: Audenshaw candidates

Nick Axford (Labour)

I AM a local resident, living on the Kings Grange estate, with a background in data analysis.

I am seeking to be elected as your local Labour councillor so I can help to make Audenshaw the best place to live, work and raise a family.

Since moving to Audenshaw, I have been an active member of the community.

My son will be attending school in Audenshaw from September, I am looking forward to working with all schools in the town to ensure our children get the best education possible.

If given the opportunity to serve our residents, I will be a strong voice for Audenshaw and will work hard to support residents with any issues that arise and help people through the Conservative cost of living crisis.

I will also work hard and make it my priority to ensure that Audenshaw gets the services, investment and opportunities that it deserves.

Charlotte Martin (Labour)

I HAVE had the privilege of being one of Audenshaw’s elected councillors for four years.

I am asking our residents to continue to put their faith in my ability to be a strong voice for our town.

I am Audenshaw born and bred, my primary school was St Anne’s RC Primary School and I am now a proud Governor at Aldwyn Primary School.

I have background in children’s social work and my role now is as a case worker, to help local people resolve issues that are affecting them.

I am an active member of Ryecroft Hall’s events team. I am committed to a safer Audenshaw – supporting neighbourhood watch, including my home estate of Roker Park.

I am part of delivering Band in the Park at Ryecroft Hall and the Memorial Gardens every summer.

I really hope to be successful in deserving your vote as Labour’s candidate on May 4.

Danny Mather (Conservative)

JUST weeks after being re-elected last year, Audenshaw’s Labour councillor dumped our town for personal political ambitions in Burnley.

But he still takes thousands of pounds in allowances, despite never being seen around the area.

Residents tell me they want someone who will roll up their sleeves and get stuck in for our area. Over the past few years, I have worked hard for our community – leading volunteers in litter picks, planting flowers in the park, campaigning to protect our children by fighting to cut traffic speeds and stop the off-road bikes, lighting up the Memorial Gardens at Christmas, and successfully pressing for the restoration of the Trough.

Labour just don’t care for Audenshaw and take you for granted.

Which of their candidates will abandon us this year? If you elect me, I will continue work hard all year round and will never leave Audenshaw behind.

Every vote really makes a difference, so vote for change this May, vote for your local Conservative candidate.

Luke Robinson (Green)

I AM standing to give the people of Audenshaw the opportunity to vote for a local Green candidate.

Tameside Council declared a climate emergency three years ago but still lacks sufficient defined actions or targets, despite an already agreed Greater Manchester Environment Plan.

Given the dramatic increase in the cost of living, the obvious actions to pursue are firstly home insulation – for lower energy bills and less CO2 emissions.

Secondly, real walking and cycling infrastructure and better and cheaper public transport. This would reduce fuel costs as well as reducing both pollution and CO2.

Green-led councils across the country are already working on these issues.

Greens are already winners in Tameside since Councillor Lee Huntbach was first elected four years ago.

It is high time we added more Greens to support his work challenging Labour on the environment and council tax bills.

Teresa Smith (Labour)

THE local elections are fast approaching and I am delighted to have been selected again to stand as a Labour candidate in Audenshaw.

The highlight of being a councillor is the amazing people that I meet. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with residents, volunteers and community groups.

Most of us are feeling the impact of the cost of living and along with my colleagues and community groups we have delivered free events, including Christmas movie nights and Bands in the Parks where every child received a free ice cream.

I pledge to help make Audenshaw a cleaner, greener environment. This means rolling up sleeves and litter picking, sorting out fly tipping and planting trees and bulbs.

If elected, I promise to always be available to the people of Audenshaw and work with my Team Audenshaw colleagues to make our area a cleaner, safer and stronger community.

I hope I can count on your vote on May 4.

  1. Let’s just say I won’t be voting for the arrogant, ignorant, pompous, self important Charlotte Martin who couldn’t even be bothered to reply to my email. Hope you lose your seat.
