Andrew Mawson is the Council Candidate for Bingley ward in the local elections which will be held on May 6th 2010, the same day as the general election.
Andrew Mawson, 41, is a civil servant and lives in Gilstead. He attended local schools including Beckfoot and therefore knows the area well. He fought the council by-election caused by the resignation of a Bingley Tory Councillor taking an increased share of the vote on a cold and snowy day in December 2008.
He is secretary of Bingley Labour Party and has been an active campaigner on local issues for several years. Andrew can be frequently seen at the Labour Action Team Street Stalls in Bingley Town Centre on Saturday mornings, talking to people about local issues such as the proposals for the auction mart site.
He is a member of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Chairman of the Northern Cricket Society.
Andy said, “I am proud to be representing Labour in this election in my home town. I already work hard in the area to get the best deal for local people so stepping up to be a Councillor is something I know I could do well for my community.”
Parliamentary candidate Susan Hinchcliffe said, "Andrew is an excellent local candidate. He's lived in Bingley all his life. When we do our regular streets stalls, he invariably gets chatting to old school friends, work colleagues and neighbours. He understands what Bingley needs and is willing to work hard to achieve it."
