Councillor Lily Kaufman
I have lived in Oadby for over 30 years. I ran a small local business and have been a councillor over six years. I always make sure that I deal with residents’ issues speedily and hopefully, in most cases satisfactorily where I am able. I am approachable and will always respond quickly.
If you re-elect me, I will endeavour to:
- keep weekly bin collections;
- keep free shoppers’ car parking;
- keep our parks in good order;
- support our Town Forum for residents to have their say;
- liaise with our MP when our children cannot get into local schools;
- work with council officers to make sure homeless people get the help they need.
I am proud of our Borough. I will work hard to keep Oadby a pleasant place to live and ensure that we are not merged with Leicestershire County or Leicester City Councils
Councillor Samia Haq
I live in Oadby with my family and have served as your local councillor for ten years – an experience that I have very much enjoyed!
As your councillor, I have campaigned for:
- Better health services, including opening and keeping the 8-9 / Urgent Care Centre in Oadby;
- Reducing crime;
- Protecting bus services;
- Fludes Lane & Uplands Park improvements including locking of park gates.
I am passionate about our area and strive for the best in everything I do. If re-elected, I will continue to work hard for residents and I believe my experience will help me to provide a friendly, flexible approach to deal with issues relating to the council or any other residents’ concerns.
