The Conservatives have announced the names of the three prospective Councillor candidates to stand in Rixton & Woolston at the forthcoming Warrington Borough Council elections in May.
The prospective Councillors are Joshua Dixon, Robert Tynan and Phil Eastty. The trio have been lobbying the Council to use some of the £5.5 Million allocated to fix potholes to repair roads in Rixton and Woolston. The team have had success managing to have a number of roads fixed as well as repairs to the path on Woolston Linear park on the stretch between Green Lane and Manchester Road.
The trio have also pledged to oppose building on the green belt and to keep our beautiful green spaces green.
Joshua Dixon is a secondary school teacher who is passionate about opportunities for young people and social mobility. Joshua said:
“Kings Leadership Academy is a real jewel in the crown of Warrington the school was established when the Council closed Woolston High and as a direct result of the Conservative Free Schools policy.
“I will be continuing my campaign to improve our local area which includes fixing potholes and preventing building on the green belt.
Robert Tynan is a Building Surveyor and commented:
“I am looking forward to standing with Joshua and Phil, between the three of us there is a lot of expertise and experience which we can use to make Rixton and Woolston and better place to live and work.
“If I am elected I will campaign against the needless destruction of our green belt in Warrington. We need to preserve our green spaces and not create continuous suburbs across Warrington.
Phil Eastty is a Foster Carer, IT Systems Analyst and Cyber-Security expert. Phil said:
“I will be campaigning for more opportunities for young people. There is nothing for young people to do in the ward and particularly in Rixton. I would like to see the Council engaging with young people in Rixton and Woolston to improve services.
“I would like to see more money spent in Rixton and Woolston and a freeze on Council tax.
The trio will stand at the Borough Council elections in May.
