Mike Cordingley – Lostock and Barton Ward (formerly Gorse Hill)
I’m immensely proud of my 15 years as a successful councillor in Gorse Hill Ward. I played a major part in transforming separate parts of the ward, working with residents to improve their environment and taking on vested interests where their activities impacted our communities.
Now that boundary changes have moved me into the new Lostock and Barton ward, I’d be delighted to be chosen to continue that work in its new setting.
With over three decades of campaigning experience and as a Labour Councillor, I am immersed in Labour Politics. I’ve been the Parliamentary Agent for the last four election successes and served in almost all the senior roles of the constituency party.
I am school governor at Lostock High and at a primary school in Old Trafford. I’ve been a volunteer at Lostock Library and I’m currently Secretary of the Co-operative Party. Those co-operative values are at the heart of everything I do.
If selected I will continue to hold advice surgeries and to be accessible to all through all the traditional and main social media channels.
Labour at its best has a party rooted in its community, sharing the ups and downs, being there, living there, and engaging on a daily basis. This is who I am and what drives me.
