I have lived in Worcester for over 15 years and I work within the city as a senior engineering manager for a large international company. I have worked in a range of departments from Purchasing, Project Management and Manufacturing within a continuous improvement culture. Many of the management skills involved in my job overlap with the skills required for being a good councillor.

12:39pm Monday 29th April 2013

I have lived in Worcester for three years and work locally for an engineering firm as a management accountant. I am passionate about making communities more resilient because high oil prices, the economic crisis and climate change will present Worcester with major problems in the future. I believe we need to support local businesses, local jobs and locally grown food. I believe that people should be employed on a living wage and that smaller local companies and cooperatives should be supported to create the social benefits of a thriving local jobs market. By encouraging low-carbon industries and community economies, and by making local polluters pay, a prosperous and resilient local economy can thrive; an economy that is in harmony with our environment rather than in conflict with it.

12:37pm Monday 29th April 2013

I have lived in Worcester since 1995, coming originally from Stourport-on-Severn. I work in housing management, working with people often in very difficult circumstances. I have a daughter who attends Worcester 6th Form College. In my work I see the harmful results of poverty, especially fuel poverty for the elderly and sick – poverty that could easily be reduced by green measures such as insulation and draft proofing. The Green Party supports compassionate, empowering and effective welfare support for all. Current economic constraints should not be used as an excuse to abandon the most vulnerable members of our society.

I want to help create a sustainable and self-reliant community that lives in harmony with a flourishing and diverse natural environment.

11:42am Monday 29th April 2013

The political landscape is changing as more and more people realise UKIP is speaking for them and not at them. On issues like the wasteful foreign aid budget – uncontrolled immigration and paying for the excesses of EU Bureaucrats - UKIP lead while the other main parties controlled by unelected party machines just follow. UKIP are free to promote common sense policies.

6:20pm Monday 29th April 2013

Dear Resident Having previously lived in the St Peter Division I know from first hand experience what a great part of the City it is. Residents enjoy living in the area and value the quality of the environment and the easy access to both the City Centre and the nearby countryside. But like any other area there are things that could be improved. The quality of roads and pavements, traffic congestion and access to local schools are all issues that local people have raised with me.

Dear Resident As Deputy Leader of the County Council, with responsibility for the economy and infrastructure, I’ve been at the heart of driving change in our local councils - striving to deliver genuine efficiencies so we can continue to protect essential public services whilst releasing resources to invest in improving the area. This has been achieved at the same time as freezing Council Tax for the last three years.

I moved to Worcester in 1999 and now live with my partner in the city. I work in the charitable sector and I have seen at first hand the very real impact the severity of the coalition's cuts has had on our communities. For the only credible challenge to these cuts, we need Labour to make its voice heard at every level of our democracy.
