Local members of Adel and Wharfedale Labour Party have chosen Nigel Gill to stand as candidate in elections for Leeds City Council on 2 May 2019.
Nigel works as a Credit Controller for a green energy company based in Leeds.
He brings with him considerable experience of local politics. He has been a Town Councillor in Otley and has also served as Otley Town Mayor between 2014 – 15. As a town councillor he handled a varied casework load, which ranged from anti-social behaviour to refuse collection, from traffic problems to environmental issues.
Outside politics Nigel is involved in community groups like Otley Action for Older People where he is a director and Otley Carnival where he is Press & Publicity Officer.
Leeds NW Labour MP Alex Sobel says: “Nigel would make a fantastic councillor for Adel and Wharfedale. He is dedicated, hard-working and knows the community like the back of his hand. Adel and Wharfedale needs a councillor who will deal with the lack of facilities for young people and issues with transport, Nigel is the right person to do that”
Nigel says: “I would like to thank party members for once again putting their faith in me. I will be fighting central government’s needless cuts to local authority spending, which are making some parts of our community suffer. They need a voice”
In 2018 Nigel was part of the team that increased Labour’s vote in Adel and Wharfedale by 20%, pushing the Liberal Democrats into a poor third place. Labour is the only realistic choice to replace the Tories in Adel & Wharfedale. To fight Tory cuts and their local impact, please give him your vote.
