Burton & Uttoxeter Liberal Democrats

Councillor Helen Hall ()Helen Hall is the East Staffordshire borough councillor for Burton Ward, covering Wetmore and the town centre. She can help you with parks, housing, environmental health, and other issues affecting safety and wellbeing in the local community.

Helen became a councillor because she wants to make a contribution to the area. Her previous experiences running a Women's Institute group, and then becoming a school governor, inspired her to stand for election. She was elected in February 2017, with 52% of the vote.

She enjoys spending time on resident's casework, and representing them on the council. As a Liberal Democrat, her purpose is to serve the people of Burton Ward, and the wider borough, instead of focusing on party politics. She serves on the Value for Money and Audit committee, ensuring that council money is spent wisely, and that procedures are followed.

    Lee Cadwallader-Allan is the Liberal Democrat candidate for the by-election in Curborough ward for Lichfield district council on July 5th

    Lee Cadwallader-Allan has lived in the Lichfield and Burntwood area for twelve years, married, with his extended family living nearby. Following his graduation in 2005 from Keele University, Lee, a native of Shropshire, has always worked in the Midlands. He has worked in the NHS for the past ten years, in an acute hospital, a mental health trust, and his current post as a management accountant is with NHS England.
    "I am passionate about health and social care. My professional experience enables me to campaign effectively for our vital local health and care services," Lee says. He is a member of the local Quaker community, and is active in the community on issues such as equality, justice, and peace, including such matters as adequate public transport services, and affordable housing in the Lichfield area.
    "We must not let cuts to local government funding hit those who are relying on the services provided by the Council," he says. "Any cuts must be applied fairly, and should not have a disproportionate impact on those in need."

    Article: Jun 18, 2018

    From Lichfield Live today.

    The long-awaited city centre redevelopment scheme for Friarsgate collapsed last week after the Cabinet at Lichfield District Council voted against footing a £49million bill to ensure it went ahead after private funding failed to materialise.

    Lib Dem councillor Paul Ray insists the council cannot let the land blot the city's landscape for too long. He adds: "We are now in a total mess and there are serious questions for Cllr Mike Wilcox and the Conservative administration of Lichfield District Council to answer.

    Crown ward is on the edge of Staffordshire, south of the River Dove. It covers the villages of Hanbury, Draycott and Marchington. The by-election in this safe Conservative seat was caused by the resignation of the previous councillor. Once again, the Conservatives held the seat.

    This was the first time this century the Liberal Democrats stood a candidate in Crown ward. The party managed to deliver a leaflet to almost all of this very spread out ward. Many thanks to those who were generous with their time. The response on the doorstep was fairly encouraging and that was reflected in a promising result, almost taking second place in a previously uncontested area.

    A Liberal Democrat councillor says the financial stability of Lichfield District Council should not be jeopardised by a desire to get the Friarsgate project off the ground.

    The local authority has drawn up a plan to foot the bill for the long-awaited city centre development after private finance did not materialise.

  • Michael Pettingale
    Article: May 20, 2018

    Michael Pettingale is to be the Liberal Democrat candidate for the by-election on June 7th. He lives locally and at the moment volunteers at Citizens Advice and works shifts at Uttoxeter Racecourse while training to become a lawyer.

    Michael says: "The Liberal Democrats just enjoyed a promising set of local election results because of our reputation for hard-working and responsive councillors and the open and outward-looking approach we take to politics. This is the first time a Lib Dem has stood in Crown ward for very many years. On June 7th, I am asking if you would join with others switching their vote to the Liberal Democrats.

    Lichfield District Council - Stowe Ward Results

    Well done Jeyan Anketell, agent Michael Pettingale and their small but hardworking team on achieving a 19% share of the voting. LD did not stand in this ward in 2015 or 2011 or indeed 2007 council elections. This was a determined effort with leaflet, canvassing and some good press/website for a ward with little LD campaigning history this century!
