As many local residents will already be aware, elections take place on Thursday 3rd May for Salford City Council and also to choose a new elected Mayor for the City of Salford.
I’m delighted that we have an excellent Conservative Mayoral candidate in Karen Garrido and I know that Anne Broomhead will be an excellent local campaigner for Walkden South. Anne replaces Cllr Nicky Turner who has decided to retire after serving local residents with distinction over the past four years. I am very grateful to her for all the hard work that she has put in.
At last year’s elections, Walkden South ward had the highest turnout in the entire City. I am very grateful to all local residents who turned out – no matter who they voted for – for making Walkden South the most active electorate in the City.
If you are not on the electoral register, there is still time to register to vote for this year’s elections. Visit the Council’s election pages for more details. Don’t lose your right to choose your elected representatives!
