It is with great pleasure we introduce local legend, John ‘Maggie’ McGrath, as your County Council candidate for Stapleford and Broxtowe Central for 2021. You might have seen John out and about on his post rounds this year dressed up in various outfits including a home guard at VE Day and more recently a Christmas elf! He’s raised nearly £2000 for local efforts supporting the community through Covid. He also takes a keen interest in planning issues in his roles at the Town and Borough Councils. Read his statement below
“I am Stapleford born and bred and I feel very lucky and privileged to have been chosen to represent not only Stapleford but the beautiful villages of Awsworth, Cossall and Trowell and nearby countryside.
I’ve brought my family up in this area, I run a local pub (The Old Cross) and I’m a local postman too. I’ve worked hard for many years as a Town and Borough Councillor and there’s been a lack of representation for Stapleford and Broxtowe Central under the Tories for all that time.
It’s important to me that we address the issues we have with public transport and making sure vulnerable people in our communities are not left isolated and out of touch with the outside world, something I’ve worked hard to achieve during the last 9 months. If you elect me in May, I will fight for these things and so much more. ” #votelabour
