Malcolm Liles was one of the 3 Green local election candidates for Manor Castle. He lives in the ward and spends most of his time there.
Malcolm Liles lives in the ward and wants to use his past experience in local government, health, and voluntary sector to benefit the local community. He attends the Manor Assembly, volunteers at the S2 Foodbank and is a retired member of Unite.
“I’m standing for election because the current Labour administration is not transparent and open to the public about its decisions and actions. We see increased expenditure on contracted out services from Amey and Veolia but significant cuts in social care, buses, and youth services, among others.
“I believe that council meetings should be webcast so that voters can see what their councillors are up to in the Town Hall, enabling more accountability to the public.
“We need a council that will work with local people and empower them to make the changes they want to see in our city, more Green councillors are needed to fight the austerity agenda of the Labour council and the central government.”
