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.
