Magid Magid is councillor for Broomhill & Sharrow Vale.
Magid came to Sheffield very young as a refugee with his family where they made the city their home. He joined the Green Party in 2014 and has been working alongside the Broomhill ward Green councillors as well as working closely with the party by holding the post of Fundraising Officer.
Magid has a wide pallet of experience from running his own digital marketing business, advisor for the housing charity Shelter as well as being the President of Hull University Students Union where he was the lead representative for 22,000 students and responsible for the union’s representation and liaison between the Union, the University, the local community and national bodies. The latter experience is really useful with more than 50% of the people living in his ward being students.
One of Magid’s main aims as a councillor for Broomhill & Sharrow Vale ward is to establish strong community partnerships between the students and residents living in the ward as well as protecting and supporting conservation areas of the ward. Magid also sits on the ‘Safer & Stronger Communities Scrutiny and Policy Committee’ which covers Housing, Community Safety & Crime and Community Cohesion.
Magid says “I recognise that I have a unique and privileged position to really make a difference to people’s lives which I don’t take lightly so will be working hard to bring positive change to the people of Broomhill & Sharrow Vale”.
