Louise Atkinson

Louise Atkinson is your local champion for Stanwix


My name is Louise Atkinson and I am standing as your Labour party candidate in the upcoming city council elections.  I am a mum, a teacher and a Trade Union leader.  I understand how a strong sense of community and togetherness can improve places to live, and to work, for the many and not the few.

Cruel Tory austerity and cuts have had a massive impact on many communities just like Stanwix.  Real terms cuts to school budgets and lack of local authority oversight has had a disastrous impact on children’s education.  Every child deserves a good school place within their community and near to their home.  Is that the case for every child here in Stanwix?

Continued cuts in funding from our nasty Conservative government has an impact on the delivery of services that the City council is able to offer you.   How often our streets and beautiful green spaces are cleaned and maintained; how safe and protected we are in our homes against flooding; how our local community centre is supported and funded; all impact how we enjoy and feel about where we live.

I would like to engage with residents from all sections of our community including families and school children, university students living temporarily in the ward and retired residents.  By organising a variety of events, meetings and clean up sessions we can all work together to improve Stanwix for everyone.    

 I am passionate about helping people and I want to make a difference to this community.  I am ready to listen to your issues, concerns and ideas and I am excited to work hard alongside you to improve the community and services within Stanwix.      

My pledges for Stanwix are:


Fight for investment in community services for the people of Stanwix


I will listen to your concerns so we can work together to improve the community, for the many not the few.


I will work hard to maintain and improve the beautiful green spaces in the area


I will be a strong and active voice in the City Council for all those living in Stanwix


I will organise regular meetings within the community to keep you up to date with changes


Louise is the hard working and determined candidate the residents in Stanwix deserve. She is a strong voice and will not stop until she makes your voices heard.
