Six candidates are standing in Fleetwood East and five in Fleetwood West and Cleveleys West next week, on Thursday May 6.
We hear from them all, in their own words.
The count takes place on May 8
Cheryl Raynor (Labour Party, Fleetwood West and Cleveleys West):
"Born and raised in Fleetwood I would love the chance to represent you as your County Councillor. I love our area; I will always fight for the residents and strive to make life better for everyone.
I have been involved in many community projects including: -West View and Flakefleet Food clubs, the Red Box project – supplying free sanitary products to schools.
I’m a member of Fleetwood Festive Lights committee, a trustee of Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs and a governor at Larkholme Primary School.
Recently I was part of the Labour team that successfully campaigned to reopen our swimming pools."
Amy Stanning (Liberal Democrats, Fleewood West and Cleveleys West):
"My name is Amy Stanning and I am a mature postgraduate student. I’ve returned education after working for many years in finance. As a historian, I’m deeply involved in heritage projects and public education. The Liberal Democrats have three big issues. One, fixing our broken roads with capital investment of £15 million. Two, delivering real action on the climate emergency. Three, protecting our public services and giving taxpayers the best value for money."
John Warnock (Green Party, Fleetwood West and Cleveleys West):
"A husband, father and granddad. my politics favour personal responsibility and co-operative community. I am standing to give everyone a real choice as the two party system has failed us at all levels of government.
Looking for a better future for my offspring. one example of many problems, a service delivered by the council, Roads not fit for purpose ! Enough said. we need to think differently and vote a party with no backers to hinder tough decisions."
A councillor should be a service to the people. I hope to achieve this through care, consideration, consultation and dialogue with a wakeful respect, without assumption or prejudice.
