Bury Liberal Democrats are a growing political force in Bury.
We are the local branch of the national Liberal Democrat Party and are true to the core Lib Dem values of freedom, fairness and the environment.
Bury Lib Dems have a growing number of members and one Councillor on Bury MBC.
The party is always on the lookout for new members or people who would like to help us in our work. We consistently campaign for fair, high quality and accountable services for local people. We have campaigned to save local post offices, for a greener Bury and the successful campaign to save Prestwich Arts College.
Nationally, the Lib Dems were the only party to oppose the Iraq War, the only party who have consistently been strong on the environment, and the only party to oppose the unfair and regressive Council Tax.
The Local Party
The Party brings together many local supporters, activists and members. New members are always welcome. Details of how to join and how to get involved are on our Support page.
Members annually elect an Executive Committee – the local Councillors are held to account by the Executive, and it is the Executive who give direction to the party in Bury.
For 2014 the Officers will be:
Chair: Donal O’Hanlon
Secretary: Steve Middleton
Treasurer: Tim Pickstone
Membership Development and Data Officer: Ben Thomas
Ordinary Members: David Foss, Steve Wright, Gareth Lloyd-Johnson and Kat Middleton
