Tameside Council Election Candidates: Stalybridge South

Amanda Hickling (Green)

I HAVE my own sewing business – teaching and making/altering clothes as well as hosting coffee mornings and fundraising events.

My husband and I moved to Stalybridge to start a family and now have two girls.

I am standing as a candidate because I believe Green politics can change our lives for the better.

The Green Party is committed to alternatives to building on precious green spaces – looking to tackle the housing crisis through using empty properties, providing better, safer management and better regulation of developments.

We champion better transport planning and safer streets, with the vision that every child can walk, cycle or scoot safely to school and play outside in clean air.

I believe in challenging the health crisis with better local care services, better funding, more responsible health planning and an end to privatisation.

We have already had an elected Green Councillor in Ashton which proves just how electable we are.

If you want Green, vote Green.

Stuart McKenzie (Labour)

I AM immensely proud to be standing as the Labour candidate for Stalybridge South Ward in the forthcoming local election.

I am deeply passionate about amplifying the challenges encountered by my generation and serving as a vocal advocate for the priorities of the often-overlooked demographic in politics.

There is an urgent need for greater representation of young people, both in shaping policies and appearing on the ballot papers.

Rather than succumb to apathy in the face of these challenges, I am committed to being a vocal advocate for all those who feel marginalised and left behind.

My foremost priority will be the residents of Stalybridge South and the young people of Tameside.

If you seek a candidate who will bridge the gap between generations, someone who will champion the aspirations of young people in Tameside, and a fresh perspective on the council, then I am on your side.

David Tilbrook (Conservative)

I HAVE lived in Stalybridge for more than 20 years.

As an active member of the community, I am involved with several groups and am Chair of Trustees at West Hill School.

Having been elected last year, I am keen to continue working hard to make the area a better place to live.

Working alongside the other Conservative Councillors in the ward, I will work hard to try and keep the area as clean as possible, look at how to make our roads safer and will continue to work alongside residents to help fight unwanted developments.

I voted against increasing council tax again and want to try and improve the failing services that we all have to suffer under Labour control.

I hope I can count on your vote to continue having a strong team in Stalybridge South.
