Your Labour candidates for Calverley and Farsley for the local elections in May

Calverley and Farsley Labour Party are proud to announce our three candidates for the Leeds City Council Elections in May. The candidates are Peter Carlill (Chair of the local branch, and previous local candidate in 2016), Naheem Alam and Nicole Sharpe.


Peter Carlill

I live in Farsley with my wife and two children. My son attends Farsley Farfield Primary School.

I run a small business in Leeds with 20 employees, have work experience in both the private and public sector, and am very active in our local community.

I love our area, especially its strong sense of community. I care strongly about our local area and services so want to make sure we have a strong voice in the ruling Labour Group on the council where important decisions are made.

What you use, I use, so it’s important to me that we get the best for my family and yours.

Nicole Sharpe

I have lived in Leeds all my life, I’m married with a young family.

I’m a Senior Caseworker employed by the MP for Leeds East. Given this role, I speak daily with constituents and attend regular advice surgeries, so know first-hand what effects this Government’s cuts to funding are having on families in Leeds.

I have given my whole working life to fight for the rights of people in Leeds and will continue to do so for the residents of Calverley & Farsley as part of the Labour team that will help to effectively deliver the services we need and use in our area.

Naheem Alam

I have lived in our ward for many years, am married and have 3 children.

I have spent most of my adult life working with, and advocating on behalf of, young people as a Careers Adviser, and have seen first-hand how the cuts to budgets have negatively impacted on their future opportunities and life chances.

This has involved working closely with many different public and voluntary agencies, and the above experience has given me the knowledge and skills necessary to be a strong voice for the residents of our ward.

I have a track record of getting things done on behalf of others, which I will continue to do for the benefit of everybody.

As your councillors we would run weekly surgeries in all areas in the ward, organise regular street surgeries to identify and solve issues, and we’ll always be available by phone or email to make appointments to visit at a time that suits you.

We will represent all corners of the ward so that Calverley, Farsley, Pudsey, Rodley, Stanningley, Thornbury and Woodhall all benefit from our hard work.

Read about our priorities including: Protecting local schools, Improving local transport, Improving health and wellbeing, Protecting our community, Improving opportunities for young people and Supporting the Labour manifesto

Vote Labour on Thursday 3rd May 2018 for a better future for Calverley and Farsley.
