As previously mentioned the new Glossop and Charlesworth Division is a two-member ward. This mean that the Labour Party will be fielding two candidates; and I am delighted to be able to tell you that our other candidate will be Maggie Mooney.
Maggie was born in Stockport, the daughter of a railwayman. She became a social worker, moved into adult education and held senior posts in Bournemouth and Halton Councils before becoming Chief Executive of Carlisle City Council in 2005. Maggie retired last year and moved back to Glossopdale with her husband Brian. She has been enjoying not being in a politically restricted position and has been very active in local groups and the Party.
I’m thoroughly looking forward to the next few months on the campaign with her.
