Local Election 2011
North Heywood Ward
I am Councillor Doreen Brophy-Lee Deputy Leader of the Independent Alliance Party and I have been very proud to represent North Heywood for the last four years.
The Independent Alliance Party was formed last December when I and six colleagues left the Liberal Democrat Party to be able to vote for common sense and look after our constituents rather than argue about party politics.
My commitment to Heywood has never been stronger and I hope to be able to serve
you with the same feeling of pride that I have had this last four years.
In the last four years I have been Cabinet Member for housing for two years and am now Vice Chair of the Policy Committee. I am also the only Councillor on the Schools Forum which looks after the welfare and education of all your children. I am still involved in housing as I am a Board member of Rochdale Boroughwide Housing who look after all the Council Houses and a Trustee Director of “Brighter Horizons” the charitable arm of RBH who have just started to build new council houses, the first bungalows for older people at Croft St. Hamer. The first new build in council houses for 23 years.
I also serve as a governor at Harwood Park primary school and Heap Bridge primary school.
I have experienced many new assignments in the last four years such as the new facilities we now have in North Heywood, such as our Sports Village which now has 4,000 members.
Long may our new build and greater facilities continue and I will, if chosen, work long and hard over the next four years so that Heywood will be the Pride of the Borough.
I WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN.
