Labour in Roundhay

Christine's post-election message to electors

I would like to thank every one of you who voted for me in the Council elections on Thursday 5th May. In the recent past Roundhay has returned Conservative Councillors. Last year the pattern was ended with the election Ghulam Hussain for Labour with a good majority. This year the trend has continued and support for Labour has grown. I am delighted to have been elected to serve Roundhay alongside Ghulam. We will work hard to serve everyone whether or not you voted for us. It is our commitment to you.

The result in Moortown and Meanwood, and in Leeds elections generally, gives a clear message to the Conservative Liberal Democrat government. - You do not have general support for the damaging policy decisions you are making.

Christine Macniven Your Labour candidate in May 2011

Christine Macniven has lived in Roundhay for the last 20 years. Christine, originally from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland lived in Edinburgh where she worked in the business sector for over 15 years before relocating to Leeds. Until recently Christine was Executive Director of an organisation which worked to provide learning and employment opportunities for young people and adults many of whom had low or no educational qualifications.

She is deeply worried about the effect the axing of the Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA) will have on young people wishing to stay on at school or go to college. She fears that the massive increase in the cost of tuition fees will exclude many young people from accessing a University education.

She lives on Gledhow Lane with her husband Iain.
Christine said "I am delighted and feel very privileged to have been selected to represent Roundhay , the ward in which I live, in the local elections. If you elect me I pledge to listen to the voters, to advocate on their behalf in every forum. I shall fight hard to ensure that Roundhay issues are addressed at Leeds City Council. Only with a Labour led council have we the best chance of ameliorating the effects of these draconian cuts on Roundhay and the City."
