Nina Charlotte BROWN

Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition

(address in Leeds)

 

Ed CARLISLE

Green Party

20 Harlech Avenue, Leeds, LS11 7DT

I’ve lived, worked, and volunteered across this area for 18+ years. I’ve co-led or supported dozens of projects and schemes:

And I’m active locally year-round, working with residents, businesses, and agencies to tackle issues (including the cladding crisis, bins, housing, crime, litter and waste, paths and roads, and more) together, developing innovative and resident-led solutions to the challenges we face.

With incredible support from a wide range of great local people, I’ve stood in elections for this area since 2015. We’ve come a strong second every time, we’re the only credible alternative here to tired old Labour, and we’re now well-placed to breakthrough and win.

More and more people feel ‘politically homeless’, disillusioned with the big parties – locally and nationally. This election presents a great opportunity for us to start afresh, elect local people to be a strong independent voice for our communities, and turn our neighbourhoods and city around for good.

Mohammed IQBAL

Labour Party

(address in Leeds)

I have been proud to serve you as part of your local Labour team, and have a proven record of standing up for local people in Civic Hall to deliver local change. Your local Labour team and I have worked throughout the pandemic to deliver improvements across the ward such as more litter bins, life-saving defibrillators, securing funding to develop a Hunslet town square, renovating our all-important pocket parks, lobbying to restore the No1 bus route and much more. I’m not into photo opportunities but am serious about delivering for local people, examples are here https://bit.ly/oldnewsletters
I’m proud of being part of the Labour Council in Leeds, which worked tirelessly during the pandemic to support local people. We provided over £30,000 for the local food hubs and ensured free school meals to all eligible children in Leeds during the holidays.
The choice this May is clear – either forge a fair post-pandemic recovery for all with a Labour council or return to the uncertainty of a Tory-led/Lib Dem/Green coalition.
You can make a fairer future possible by voting Mohammed IQBAL on Thursday May 6th and keep your local Labour team together- working hard for you.
