Meet your council candidates: Cotmanhay
25 January 2019
I have represented the people of Cotmanhay for the last four years on the Council; this has been my first term.
I would like to have the opportunity to continue with building on the relationships I have already made within the local community to ensure a better future for Cotmanhay.
I supported the “Save Hazelwood campaign” and have lobbied Derbyshire County Council to improve the roads and footpaths around Cotmanhay where considerable work is required making sure Cotmanhay is treated the same as the rest of the Borough.
Only a labour run Borough Council will ensure that communities like Cotmanhay will get the funding and support they need to build a brighter future.
I am 51 years young, lead an active life within the whole of the community supporting projects such as Sure Start, Scouts, Guides and Action for Cotmanhay.
Only Voting for Labour will Cotmanhay receive the opportunities the people deserve.
I am Jane Wilson and I have been lucky enough to have been elected as Councillor for Cotmanhay for the last 14 years.
I have lived in Cotmanhay for 25 years and am proud to be part of such a kind and considerate community.
I worked in Cotmanhay at Community Concern, also cooking for many residents at the luncheon club held in the Pavillion.
I have two children, one of whom runs a pub locally in the town centre. I also have four grandchildren who live locally.
Unfortunately I suffered a severe stroke three years ago which has left me paralysed. However, I have not allowed this to stop me representing the people of Cotmanhay on Erewash Borough Council.
I am always contactable by phone and I have continued to support residents who need help whether its getting appropriate housing or working with County colleagues on highways or education matters.
I am a big advocate for disabled people and am regularly riding around the streets pointing out problems that pop up. The pavements are disgusting, as are the roads, often making them unsafe for wheelchairs. I have managed to get some problems addressed and will continue to fight for better streets as we all benefit when we have good, safe highways.
