A message from Nik, who is standing to represent Otley and Yeadon on the city council in the local elections on May 5th:

“The government has cut Leeds City Council funding to the bone.

 I’m not interested in blaming, attacking or calling for the impossible.

I want to bring people together, and get stuck in to negotiate a fair deal for Otley and Yeadon on the REAL issues like traffic congestion,  housing, facilities and services for young people and protecting our environment. 

We’ll be posting news and information over the next few weeks about these and other local issues.  I’ll set out my ideas about how we can bring people together – from the community, from the city council and from other organisations who can help – to work towards the solutions and the changes that you want to see.

I’d like to hear from YOU about the issues that matter to you, your family and your neighbourhood. Please get in touch here or through our facebook page.”
