Kevin Walsh
A word from the chair of the Bolton Liberal Democrats
The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

This translates directly into the work we are doing within Bolton, campaigning for a more open, honest and accountable local council. Most recently we have been the only political party with councillors in the Town Hall campaigning against proposed fracking in Horwich, Westhoughton and surrounding areas. We are the only party pushing proposals to cut the number of councillors from three per ward to two per ward - saving more than £300,000 a year and making the council more accountable than ever. We are fighting for more public consultation on controversial plans - such as the recent decision to pour £3million into the short-sighted Newport Street revamp - and are pushing to allow more public scrutiny within all meetings.

If, like Bolton Liberal Democrats, you believe that you need to have a council that LISTENS to what you have to say; UNDERSTANDS the need for long-term investment to solve the problems within the town rather than short-term 'people pleasing'; and CHAMPIONS ALL communities within the town, bringing us closer together rather then encouraging divisions; then join us.

It's time we all worked together to #TakeBackOurTown

Bolton Council meeting intro.





It's Council Meeting day and your Lib Dem team will be bringing you updates from both the planned protest and from inside the chamber. For anyone who has never been to a council meeting before, it can get a bit boring. So we thought we'd help you keep your spirits up with our new "Bolton Bingo: Council Edition". Just print off your card, come along to the meeting (or watch online here from 7:30) and if you mark them all off - shout Bingo! Share it round and lets see if we can get the whole town playing Bolton Bingo! (no prizes. But if you're in the chamber when it happens - major kudos)

Open, Tolerant and United

Feel that you are being let down by Labour's Closed Door Council and trapped by the Tories? There is a real alternative. If you are looking for a more open, honest and accountable local Council and a fairer, tolerant, united society, the Liberal Democrats are waiting to hear from you.

Tim Farron: “I congratulate Paul Nuttall on it being his turn to lead UKIP. I am confident that he will lead the party in much the same manner as Nigel Farage, who no doubt will be back in the leadership after a few weeks of recharging his batteries stateside.’’

Cllr Nick Peel is on a quest to bury the Asons grant issue under some of the less controversial inititives the Council has. So lets help him. Share this far and wise and lets make sure people know that if they need help bringing a home back into use so that we can reduce the number of people at risk of homelessness, they can borrow the cash.
