You will find my name on the Unsworth ballot paper, my name is the 4th one down. I urge you to vote for change this year, let’s have something different for Unsworth. Labour already have three councillors representing Unsworth, its time for someone different. The Green, UKIP and Conservative candidates don’t live in Unsworth – pick local, vote Steve Middleton.
